The Magneraud experimental unit is located on the west coast of France. Its geographic position, with an oceanic climate, allows the unit to test both varieties adapted to Northern regions and those theoretically reserved for France’s warmer regions.
The Le Magneraud Experimental Unit is based on the INRA site. This station is responsible for variety testing of field varieties in liaison with two other GEVES stations in Anjouère and Montpellier. It carries out testing which is necessary for:
GEVES’s reference collections for field crop plants are conserved here. All seed lots undergoing VCUS testing go through this station.
Experts who work at this station play a key role in the evolution of protocols and testing methods at national and international levels, through their collaboration with organisations such as the CTPS, the CPVO and UPOV, and also through methodological research projects which are conducted at the station.
