A four day training course on seed sampling for phytosanitary analyses will be organized in the framework of the TESTA dissemination activity.

The aim of the training course is to give delegates a detailed knowledge on seed sampling methods, strongly based on mathematical-statistical relevance, in order to develop seed sampling strategies allowing maximum accuracy and robustness for pathogen detection in seed lots. The training course will be organized in collaboration with CRA-SCS (formerly known as ENSE, the National Agency for Seed Quality of Italy), using the premises made available in Bologna for seminars, and under the auspices of Assosementi (the Italian Association of Seed Industry), with extensive and practical sampling activity made in three industrial stores and on different seeds (cereals, vegetables, pulse).
