A network of reference material (varieties and strains) for testing varieties for resistance to pathogens and pests.
MATREF is a network of reference material managed by GEVES for testing varieties for resistance to pathogens and pests. It was created in 2002 for disease resistance tests performed for registration in the official catalogue (CTPS), for Plant Variety Rights (CPVO or INOV), or for external clients.
In 2020, MATREF contained 202 control varieties and differential hosts, as well as 48 pathogens and pests (in connection with ISF differential host sets).
On this page you will find the different strains, control varieties and differential hosts available at the GEVES pathology laboratory. By clicking on the species images below, you can consult the material available for each species.
