Background information

Following an ECPGR ad hoc meeting on wheat held in Paris, France, in May 1996, the ECPGR Working Group on Wheat was officially established by the ECPGR Steering Committee in July 1998. The Working Group met for the first time in Prague, Czech Republic, November 2001. The second meeting took place in September 2005 in La Rochelle, France.
