IBA web library

What is the IBA web-library?

icon IBA web libraryThe presentations that you can find in this section contain precious information on many subjects: blackcurrant growing, blackcurrant marketing, and the research carried out in various institutes and universities all over the world. The research is not only on agronomic aspects of the blackcurrant, but also (and on a large scale) on the health benefits of blackcurrants.

We have collected most of these almost 150 presentations at our annual conferences. During these conferences, speakers from all over the world and from many different horizons talk about blackcurrants. If you have not assisted to the conferences, or if you need to see one of these presentations again, you will find what you need here.

Please understand that the International Blackcurrant Association and its partners do not share these presentations with non-paying members.
