Seminario; True Healthy Olivar Cultivar; 2019
The production of true to type and free from pest and diseases plants according to the EPPO protocol has become mandatory for the olive sector. To address this problem, different countries are reviewing their protocols for plant certification. The IOC Network of Germplasm Banks will require true to type and healthy plant material to be exchanged between the member banks. In a first step the THOC (True Healthy Olive Cultivars), a joint Project of the IOC and the UCO, will accomplish the authentication and sanitation of the 101 most propagated cultivars in the olive growing countries. Plant material of these 101 cultivars will be available for all the Germplasm Banks upon request, according to the protocol established by the IOC. The cost of this exchange of material will be supported by the demanding Bank.In summary the goals of this Seminar are to:_ Review the current status of the banks of the IOC network._ Define and adopt a protocol for the management and cataloguing of the olive cultivars of the IOC Network._ Present the status of the THOC project and the scheduled activities._ Propose new joint activities.
