Technical assistance is likely to be most readily available from a nearby university, particularly from a professor who is in charge of a plant breeding club. This assistance may be minimal, consisting of no more than casual advice. Or it may range through practical training sessions to actually designating and supplying the pathotypes in question. No doubt, this assistance will be given on a co-operative basis, and the amateur club will be expected to reciprocate. The most likely form of reciprocation would be invitations to students who want to experience other crops and other clubs.
