DUSTNT is a computer program which helps manage and analyse data from Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability (DUS) variety trials for cross pollinating crops such as herbage and vegetable crops. Use of the program enables decisions to be made on whether new varieties of the crop are uniform, stable and distinct from established varieties.
The program has been produced by the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) with some additional funding from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
To download the DUSTNT software it is necessary to register. Once registered, an e-mail will be sent supplying a username and password (this may take a few hours).
