The second day of the MASIPAG workshop on the Philippines took place under the motto “Vegetable and Onion Day”. In the morning the onion farm of the breeder Marcelino de la Rosa was visited. The participants were given a guided tour of the farm and visited the cultivation and breeding areas. The afternoon was focussed on the cultivation of vegetable and, more specifically, onion seed. There was a contribution of the German side to onion breeding and onion varieties as well as a contribution of MASIPAG to Philippine variety breeding. The aim of the afternoon was to highlight similarities and differences in the work of the workshop participants.
