We provide a discriminating dosage study (DD) with a YES / NO determination or a full dose-response relationship study with EC50-calculation. We collect single or mix culture isolates from pathogen samples collected from the field or air. We cultivate susceptible plants, treat the plants with different concentrations of fungicides and inoculate leaf segments from the treated plants with the single or mix pathogen isolates. The pathogens are grown on the leaf segments on agar in petri dishes and evaluated by our scientists. The resulting data is analysed for trends on potential resistance and adaptation, including seasonal, local, regional and European trends.
We continuously develop and improve methodologies in the field of agriculture and horticulture.
