Welcome to the European Cultivated Potato Database

Welcome to the newly refreshed site for the European Cultivated Potato Database (ECPD). 

The site retains many of the features that users of the previous site will be familiar with, including all the botanical and disease data provided by institutes throughout Europe.

As part of the refresh we have taken the opportunity to integrate the data from the “botanical” database used within SASA for the purposes of Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability (DUS) testing in potato and based on UPOV Guidelines and CPVO Protocols.  Users will therefore see two character sets within the new database as well as a different range of material, with the ECPD element continuing to focus on genetic resource varieties whilst the “botanical” element covers varieties passing through DUS.
