Our crop plants, their varieties and wild relatives are essential for our food, nutrition and economic security.

But these plant genetic resources are being eroded and current efforts to maintain them are insufficient.

Farmer’s Pride is bringing together people with an interest in conserving and using plant genetic resources on farms, in gardens and in the wild.
