What is the Blackcurrant Agronomy & Plant Breeding Sector Group ?

The IBA Blackcurrant Agronomy & Plant Breeding Sector Group officially started its work in 2016. This working group is a sub-section of the International Blackcurrant Association. Its objective is to collect information in the fields of agronomy and plant breeding from all blackcurrant growing countries. This information can thus be shared between blackcurrant growers and blackcurrant agronomy specialists. The work of the sector group aims at facilitating the access to this information.

Membership and meetings

The members of the sector group meet bi-annually at the international conferences. Any person or organization can become a member of IBA A&PB Sector Group at any time. Only membership in the IBA is compulsory for any participant.
