At the HOBAHO Testcentrum in Hillegom, the Netherlands, breeding has focused on having a strong floral stalk combined with an inflorescence with many florets.

The research also addressed other aspects, including the transmission of the traits, the development of screening tests for the selection of resistant genotypes, and the evaluation of the characteristics of commercial cultivars (Van Eijk and Leegwater 1975; Van Eijk et al. 1978, 1979; Van Eijk and Eikelboom 1983, 1990; Romanov et al. 1991; Eikelboom et al. 1992).
