Descriptive Variety Lists database

Descriptive Variety Lists database

The Federal Plant Variety Office publishes Descriptive Variety Lists (Beschreibende SortenlisteBSL) in order to provide consumers with an overview of the characteristics of the varieties on the market.

For agricultural and vegetable species, the Descriptive Variety Lists are predominantly composed of varieties that are listed in Germany. In these species, marketing of seed is only permitted for varieties registered in Germany or included in the Common Catalogue.
