Interpretive Summary: Conservation of Lens germplasm is almost entirely ex situ as seed, from wild and domestic annuals and also the wild perennials. The International Center for Agriculture in Dry Areas has the global mandate for research on lentil improvement, and thus houses the world collection of Lens, which includes aro accessions.

The United States’ National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) coordinates Federal, State, and private sector efforts to collect, maintain, and preserve plant germplasm for potential use in the improvement of crops used in agriculture and by: 5.

Major crops in the U.S.A. are non-indigenous. A national system is required to preserve and distribute plant germplasm essential for food and fiber production systems in the nation. The purpose of this project is to cooperate with the PGRCU unit at Griffin, GA to acquire, preserve, evaluate, document, and distribute plant germplasm essential for improvement of agricultural systems in South.

Plant Germplasm Preservation and Utilization in U.S. Agriculture. Report No. November Ames, Iowa: Council for Agricultural Science and Technology. U.S. Department of Agriculture. Plant Inventory No. Part I. The Plant Exploration and Exchange Program supports plant explorations to acquire germplasm to fill gaps in the US National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) collections.

Plant explorations involve collection of traditional landraces, crop wild relatives, and other wild plants directly from in situ conditions, in the U.S. and other countries. Under this MOU, the NSSL stores seeds from rare U.S.

plants in the Center's National Collection of Endangered Plants at no cost to the Center or its participating institutions. The CPC's National Collection of Endangered Plants represents perhaps the most fundamental reserve of plant germplasm for many of the rarest plants in the U.S.

This report provides information on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Plant Germplasm System. This system provides germplasm that is used by plant breeders and researchers to develop new and improved plant varieties for crop production.

To conduct our work, we surveyed the members of the 40 Crop Germplasm Committees that advise the. A stable and continuous supply of plant genetic resources plays a significant role in sustaining the crop productivity of the Western region which comprises diverse environments and crop species.

Scientists and breeders in the western region, in the United States and around the globe, rely on plant germplasm to provide desirable traits to improve major crops, minor regional crops, and to.

The Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN) documents these animal, microbial, and plant collections through informational pages, searchable databases, and links to USDA-ARS projects that curate the collections.

Demand for Genetic Resources and the U.S. National Plant Germplasm System Abstract Although genetic resources have strong public-goods characteristics, public genebanks often have struggled for adequate funding.

A review of economic literature on the value of plant genetic resources indicated that more information is needed about germplasm use.

The U.S. National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) has the primary responsibility for the ex situ preservation of germplasm collections of crop plants and their wild relatives in the U.S.

The NPGS currently maintains over accessions of more than 13 species in its working collections. T he size and organization of a program to manage genetic resources varies with the goals and policies of a nation and the resources it is willing to commit to that purpose.

There are, however, basic elements essential to all national programs for managing plant genetic resources. This chapter describes the components of the National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) in the context of the elements.
