At its meeting on 14th November, the CTPS “Rapeseed and other cruciferous plants” section proposed the registration of 9 varieties on list A. These are in addition to the 15 varieties proposed in July. 20 of them are qualified as “partially resistant” to Turnip Yellows Virus (TuYV). 2 varieties have also been proposed for registration on list B.

At this meeting, various developments concerning the DUS and VCUS studies were discussed. An additional test protocol for distinguishing TuYV resistance was studied and validated. Regarding the optional VCUS test for TuYV resistance, a new rule for awarding the resistance mark was also studied and approved.

A new version of the rapeseed variety CEPP sheet, which has been under development for over a year by the interprofession, was presented. This revised sheet groups together 4 levers for reducing the application of plant protection products based on varietal characteristics. It includes more than 175 listed varieties. Once it has been approved by the CEPP committee, the sheet will be published before the end of the year, so that it can be applied from 2024.

The next section meeting will be the 31 July 2024.
