|Newsletter: Allium Purpose
There is ongoing research on the improvement of a range of vegetable crops and ornamentals in the genus Allium around the world. The purpose of the Allium Improvement Newsletter is to foster improved understanding and utility of Allium by providing a means for exchange of information and germplasm among Allium research scientists.
A broad spectrum of contributions will be collected in the Allium Improvement Newsletter. The following subject areas will be included in the scope of the newsletter: reports on Allium taxonomy, germplasm collection and evaluation, breeding and genetics, new technology (including molecular biology, tissue culture, biochemistry, etc.), diseases and disease resistance (including white rot), seed production and quality, crop production, and crop storage; summaries of field production and storage trial results from long-day, intermediate-day, and non-tropical short-day growing areas; germplasm releases, items for exchange, and inquiries; and news including production statistics, contents lists of other Allium newsletters, meeting announcements and reports, and membership lists. This is not an all-inclusive list and reports on related subject areas would be welcome.
