The article offers the insights of World Breeding BV breeder Pieter Jan Kos and commercial manager Kees van der Wereld regarding the breeding of lilies. Van der Wereld mentions the two types of lilies such as the workhorses and show ponies which are widely recognized for their strength, disease resistance and productivity. Kos discusses the success of their 2011 Dutch Lily Days.

    Disease resistance is often measured as plant survival, which involves taking multiple counts of plants before and after disease incidence. Often, survival data are analyzed by forming a single derived variable, namely final counts expressed as a percentage of initial counts. In this study we...
