Many thanks to Professor Vilem Podraszky and to Ing Vaclav Hruby, secretary of the CAAS and their colleagues. This would not have possible without the financial help of the Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry, thanks to the past president Dr Kerstin Niblaeus and her collaborator Mr Magnus Stark.
