1.Subject of these Test Guidelines


These Test Guidelines apply to all varieties of Allium schoenoprasum L.


2.Material Required


2.1 The competent authorities decide on the quantity and quality of the plant material required for testing the variety and when and where it is to be delivered. Applicants submitting material from a State other than that in which the testing takes place must ensure that all customs formalities and phytosanitary requirements are complied with.
2.2 The material is to be supplied in the form of seed.
2.3 The minimum quantity of plant material, to be supplied by the applicant, should be:
6 g or at least 5,000 seeds.
2.4 The seed should meet the minimum requirements for germination, species and analytical purity, health and moisture content, specified by the competent authority. In cases where the seed is to be stored, the germination capacity should be as high as possible and should be stated by the applicant
2.5 The plant material supplied should be visibly healthy, not lacking in vigor, nor affected by any important pest or disease.
2.6 The plant material should not have undergone any treatment which would affect the expression of the characteristics of the variety, unless the competent authorities allow or request such treatment. If it has been treated, full details of the treatment must be given.


3.Method of Examination

3.1 Duration of Tests


The minimum duration of tests should normally be two independent growing cycles.

3.2 Testing Place


The tests should normally be conducted at one place. If any characteristics of the variety, which are relevant for the examination of DUS, cannot be seen at that place, the variety may be tested at an additional place.

3.3 Conditions for Conducting the Examination


The tests should be carried out under conditions ensuring satisfactory growth for the expression of the relevant characteristics of the variety and for the conduct of the examination.

3.4 Test Design


3.4.1 The design of the tests should be such that plants or parts of plants may be removed for measurement or counting without prejudice to the observations which must be made up to the end of the growing cycle.
3.4.2 Each test should be designed to result in a total of at least 60 plants, which should be divided between two or more replicates.

3.5 Number of Plants / Parts of Plants to be Examined


Unless otherwise indicated, all observations determined by measuring or counting should be made on 60 plants or parts taken from each of 60 plants.
