    As part of the vegIMPACT project a laboratory test in the Netherlands was done with potato (Solanum tuberosum) var. Bintje and onion (Allium cepa) var. Sturon. In both crops mancozeb was sprayed with and without the adjuvants Bond and Indostick. In both crops these three treatments were applied with high and low spray volumes. After spraying, rain was simulated (0.5, 3 or 6 hours after spraying and a control without rain) to test the sticker properties. After five days, plant leaves were analysed on mancozeb residue. Five days after spraying the potato plants were inoculated with Phytophthora infestans and onions with Peronospora destructor. Subsequently, disease symptoms were observed and visually rated as percentage of infected leaves. In potato lower mancozeb residue levels were measured at high spray volumes. Under dry conditions the effect of adjuvant on mancozeb residue in potato was limited. In onion the spreader characteristics of the adjuvants resulted in higher mancozeb residue concentrations than without adjuvant. The impact of rain simulation was much bigger than the impact of adjuvant on mancozeb residue and late blight incidence. Therefore, it is not recommended to spray when rain is expected within the same day as spraying. With rain simulation in both onion and potato more mancozeb residue was present when using the adjuvant Bond than when spraying mancozeb without an adjuvant. However, also with Bond after rain simulation high amounts of mancozeb were washed off. Mancozeb with Bond in potato resulted in less late blight incidence than with spraying mancozeb without adjuvants. Overall the adjuvant Bond performed better than Indostick in terms of mancozeb retention on both potato and onion leaves . Indostick had good spreading properties that under dry conditions resulted in higher mancozeb residue levels in onion. Under rainy conditions the effect of Indostick on mancozeb residues was not or only slightly better than mancozeb without adjuvant.

    Variety choice is an important component of organic crop management. The organic sector pursues to produce healthy, nutritious food without using synthetic inputs and excessive amounts of natural resources. Access to varieties that are able to cope with weeds, diseases and pests, and thrive well under an organic fertility management regime, allows actors in the organic food production chain to achieve these aspirations. In this thesis I analyse how the current breeding, variety assessment and registration process should be changed to provide varieties that fulfil the needs of organic farmers, traders and processors. The research is based on the cases of two crops, onion (Allium cepa) and spring wheat (Triticum aestivum), that differ in key issues that influence the options for change: breeding and variety registration aspects; organic seed and crop production issues; destination of the harvest; and composition of and relations between actors in the production chain.

    Variety trials, in which we evaluated onion and spring wheat varieties for traits prioritized by organic stakeholders, revealed that the variety assortment displayed important weaknesses when grown and processed organically. In the case of onion, farmers needed varieties with improvements for resistances against main diseases, root system, storability and erect plant types in combination with high yield. For spring wheat, weed suppressiveness and baking quality were the key traits that required improvements.

    Interviews with conventional onion breeders showed that they focussed on yield and post-harvest traits (storability, bulb quality). In addition to these traits, breeding for the organic sector would require breeders to pay more attention to the selection of field traits like partial resistance against leaf diseases and a better root system. To improve key traits for organic growers, selection should take place in a growing environment without the fungicides and herbicides that are typically applied in conventional nurseries.

    Interviewing conventional wheat breeders made clear that selection for the organic market would conflict with achieving the high yield demanded by conventional growers. Breeders have achieved high yields by increasing the harvest index, which goes at the expense of baking quality through a relative decrease in protein content. Based on a literature review, we propose two alternative approaches to improve yield and protein content simultaneously: selection for increased total biomass or/and selection for protein quality. The first approach would deliver taller, leafier varieties that are also more competitive against weeds. Improving protein quality would require selection under low nitrogen input or organic growing conditions as protein composition is strongly influenced by soil nitrogen availability. Analysis of data of our own conventional and organic variety trials, together with datasets from other European countries showed that for other important traits (e.g., yield, disease resistance, plant length) selection for the organic sector could also be conducted in non-organically managed breeding nurseries, which typically refrain from fungicides and growth regulator applications, as genetic correlations for these traits were high (0.8 -1.0).

    Conducting variety trials in organic fields and evaluating these for traits prioritized by the stakeholders make results more relevant for the latter. In the specific case of Value for Cultivation and Use (VCU) testing, that is part of the official variety registration procedure of field crops in the EU, adapting the research protocol proved crucial to provide market access to varieties better adapted to organic production. The organic spring wheat VCU testing resulted in the inclusion of varieties in an organic section of the Dutch Recommended List of Varieties, showing that the statutory variety testing system is flexible to address new needs. However, procedures are costly and not in proportion to market size and in this way prohibit the release of varieties for organic and other small markets.

    Although specifically wheat breeders proved to be open to consider adaptations in their programme, the relatively small market prevents conventional private sector breeders from investing in selecting varieties specifically targeted at the organic sector. Therefore we elaborate options to set up a way of breeding that is in line with organic principles and overcomes this economic barrier.

    Een belangrijke vraag voor de biologische landbouw is hoe veredeling kan bijdragen aan betere rassen voor biologische teeltomstandigheden. De rassen die biologische telers gebruiken komen voort uit gangbare veredelingsprogramma’s. Deze rassen zijn niet altijd even goed aangepast aan biologische productiemethoden. Uit eerder onderzoek bleek dat er grote verschillen in zaadkwaliteit waren van de gangbare en biologische selecties, waardoor moeilijk te zeggen is in hoeverre verschillen in wortelgroei het gevolg zijn van zaadkwaliteit dan wel selectie.

    Neotoxoptera formosana (Takahashi) is a pest of wild and cultivated Allium species, but never iwht disastrous consequences. In 1984, N. formosana was found in France. This was the first finding in Europe. Since then, N. formosana has been observed also in other European countries. The first record for The Netherlands dates from 1993. Hoever, this finding is very doubful, because the aphids found were not properly identified; rather the names of three species known to occur on the food plant were suggested, including N. formosana. To my knowledge the present report documents the first occurrence of N. formosana in The Netherlands

    Voor de bestrijding van valse meeldauw in ui is de inzet van fungiciden vooralsnog onontbeerlijk. Om de emissie naar het milieu en de kosten zoveel mogelijk te beperken is in een veldproef in zaaiui onderzocht of door toevoeging van hulpstoffen aan fungiciden de effectiviteit tegen schimmelziektes wordt verhoogd en de dosering van de fungiciden daardoor verlaagd kan worden. Voor de toevoeging van een aantal hulpstoffen blijkt dat inderdaad het geval te zijn.

    Onion (Allium cepa L.) cultivation in low input and organic farming systems is hampered by Fusarium basal rot (FBR) and the limited ability of onion to take up nutrients like phosphorus. The symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) contributes to plant acquisition of phosphorus, among other benefits. This PhD research studied the potential contributions from A. fistulosum and A. roylei to breed onion cultivars with resistance to FBR and enhanced benefit from the symbiosis with AMF. The genetic basis of these traits was studied in an A. cepa x (A. roylei x A. fistulosum) population. A collection of Fusarium isolates was analysed using AFLP markers. The most abundant species was F. oxysporum (with isolates clustered in two clades) followed by F. proliferatum. The Allium species were screened for FBR resistance using one F. oxysporum isolate from each clade, and one F. proliferatum isolate. Allium fistulosum showed high levels of resistance to these three isolates and A. roylei intermediate levels of resistance. High level of resistance from A. fistulosum was dominantly expressed in the A. roylei x A. fistulosum hybrid and the tri-hybrid population. A molecular linkage map based on AFLP markers was developed for the A. roylei x A. fistulosum hybrid. A QTL for FBR resistance from A. roylei was mapped on chromosome 2, and a QTL from A. fistulosum on chromosome 8. Each QTL separately had significant effect on FBR but did not confer complete resistance, thus more QTLs from A. fistulosum remain to be discovered. Regarding Allium-AMF relationship, a first step of research studied genetic diversity and colonization levels of naturally occurring AMF, comparing organic and conventional onion farming in the Netherlands. All plants were colonized with 60% average arbuscular colonization. Onion yields were positively correlated with colonization. AMF phylotypes were identified by rDNA sequencing. The number of phylotypes per field ranged from one to six. Two Glomus-A phylotypes were the most abundant, whereas other phylotypes were infrequently found. Organic and conventional fields had similar number of phylotypes and Shannon diversity indices. A few organic and conventional fields had larger number of phylotypes, which suggested that specific environmental conditions or agricultural practices influence AMF diversity. The genetic basis for the response to AMF in the tri-hybrid Allium population was evaluated in two independent greenhouse experiments. The weights of mycorrhizal plants were significantly larger than the non-mycorrhizal plants. Mycorrhizal Responsiveness (MR) was negatively correlated with plant weight in the non-mycorrhizal condition and was therefore considered unsuitable as an index for plant breeding purposes. Two new indices were proposed: mycorrhizal benefit (MB) and mycorrhizal breeding value (MV). Tri-hybrid genotypes showed transgressive segregation for plant weight, MB, and MV. Two QTLs from A. roylei for these traits were detected on chromosomes 2 and 3. A QTL from A. fistulosum for MV (but not MB), plant weight and the number of stem-borne roots was found on linkage group 9. Positive correlations between plant weight, rooting system and benefit from mycorrhiza were observed, which open prospects to combine these traits in the development of more robust onion cultivars.

    Possibilities for breeding to improve responsiveness to arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in onion

    Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) play an important role in the uptake of nutrients and water from soil. However, some crops, for example onion, Allium cepa L., have a poorly developed root system. As a result, onion plants need a lot of fertiliser for growth, and they are sensitive to drought. The aim of this project is to study the beneficial effects of mycorrhizal fungi on the growth and development of Allium species and to determine whether it is possible to improve onions for mycorrhizal responsiveness by breeding. Variation among Allium species indicated that selection and thus breeding for high responsiveness to AMF is possible. Two years of experiments with genotypes of a population segregating for mycorrhiza responsiveness indicated that increase in dry matter may be a more reliable trait than responsiveness

    De biologische landbouw kent voor sommige gewasssen specifieke knelpunten die via de teelt moeilijk aangepakt kunnen worden, maar die via de veredeling wél behandeld kunnen worden. In de afgelopen vier jaar heeft in het kader van Bioconnect een onderzoeksprogramma gelopen om de ontwikkeling van betere rassen te ondersteunen. Het onderzoek heeft zich vooral gericht op de weerbaarheid tegen trips (kool), zwarte vlekken (peen) en fusarium (tarwe) en op het ontwikkelen van nieuwe veredelingsstrategieën (ui)

    Main stream commercial onion breeders do not select varieties for organic farming, but solely for conventional farming. Seed companies consider the organic market too small to justify investments in breeding for this sector. In order to study if their varieties also suit organic farmers¿ needs we interviewed four Dutch commercial onion breeders on their breeding programme and selection criteria and compared the outcome with a variety profile composed of the priority traits of Dutch organic farmers. Breeders gave priority to the same storage and bulb quality traits that are demanded by organic farmers, because organic onions are exported to conventional supermarkets that apply the same quality standards to organic and conventional onions. However, organic farmers also need varieties that perform well in the field. Breeders give low priority to field selection. Furthermore, three of the four seed companies only breed hybrids. The cytoplasmic male sterility system used to produce these hybrids does not comply with organic principles. We conclude that at present breeders can provide varieties that meet organic farmers¿ demands for storability and quality traits, but they should give higher priority to field selection to also improve required field traits. The latter will only occur, if in future the organic seed market will grow. If the organic sector wants varieties developed according to its own principles, it should either set up its own onion breeding programme or seek alliances with breeding companies that are prepared to harmonize their breeding methodology with the organic principles

    The aim of this research was to study levels of resistance to Fusarium basal rot in onion cultivars and related Allium species, by using genetically different Fusarium isolates. In order to select genetically different isolates for disease testing, a collection of 61 Fusarium isolates, 43 of them from onion (Allium cepa), was analysed using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers. Onion isolates were collected in The Netherlands (15 isolates) and Uruguay (9 isolates), and received from other countries and fungal collections (19 isolates). From these isolates, 29 were identified as F. oxysporum, 10 as F. proliferatum, whereas the remaining four isolates belonged to F. avenaceum and F. culmorum. The taxonomic status of the species was confirmed by morphological examination, by DNA sequencing of the elongation factor 1-¿ gene, and by the use of species-specific primers for Fusarium oxysporum, F. proliferatum, and F. culmorum. Within F. oxysporum, isolates clustered in two clades suggesting different origins of F. oxysporum forms pathogenic to onion. These clades were present in each sampled region. Onion and six related Allium species were screened for resistance to Fusarium basal rot using one F. oxysporum isolate from each clade, and one F. proliferatum isolate. High levels of resistance to each isolate were found in Allium fistulosum and A. schoenoprasum accessions, whereas A. pskemense, A. roylei and A. galanthum showed intermediate levels of resistance. Among five A. cepa cultivars, `Rossa Savonese¿ was also intermediately resistant. Regarding the current feasibility for introgression, A. fistulosum, A. roylei and A. galanthum were identified as potential sources for the transfer of resistance to Fusarium into onion.

    Onion (Allium cepa L.) is one of the leading vegetable crops worldwide. Due to its superficial root system that is rarely branched and lacks root hairs, onion is very inefficient in the uptake of water and nutrients. As a result, large amounts of fertilizer are used in onion cultivation. In low-input systems crops need to be nutrient scavengers. To improve nutrient uptake in onions it is possible to breed for larger root systems using A. fistulosum. A complementary approach is to use arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), which associate with onion and improve plant growth and the uptake of nutrients and water from soils. Previous research showed high responsiveness of A. fistulosum with AMF. The aim of the present research was to study possibilities to improve onions for mycorrhizal responsiveness by breeding.
