* Please indicate on the registration page your preference for one of the four technical visits

Each attendee will have to give his/her preference between the 4 proposed technical visits with about 45 persons per site (INRA, GEVES, CTIFL, LVS);
The first persons registered will have chance to get their first choice.
  1. GEVES visit: Eggplant and Pepper Relatives.
    Cultivated and wild species related to Solanum melongena and to Capsicum annuum will be displayed in an open field trial.
  2. INRA GAFL visit: Pepper Diversity and Root Characterization of Eggplant.
    The pepper core-collection from the European H2020 G2P-SOL project will be displayed in an open field trial and a new protocol for phenotyping the eggplant root system will be presented.
    Introduction to Espelette pepper tasting – presentation of its features, method of production and area of origin.
  3. HM Clause-Limagrain visit: Showcase of Worldwide Commercial Peppers of Different Typologies.
    Reception in the HM Clause breeding station in Saint-Rémy-de Provence with a presentation of Limagrain research and breeding activities on pepper (Capsicum annuum), followed by a visit of the pepper plots and discussions around harvested fruits.
  4. CTIFL visit: Control of Eggplant Pathogens and Root Characterization of Pepper.
    Presentation of CTIFL (Technical Institute of Fruits and Vegetable), followed by visits of: (1) a trial to protect eggplants against phytophagous bugs (Nezara viridula and Lygus spp.) by combining mechanical control, varietal susceptibility and biological control, (2) an experiment on grafting to protect eggplants against soil-borne pathogens (Meloidogyne spp, Verticillium dahliae), and (3) a new protocol for phenotyping the pepper root system.
