Access to plant genetic resources

Concept for a possible extension of EURISCO for in situ crop wild relative and on-farm landrace data

This document constitutes a first proposal for a possible extension of the European Search Catalogue for Plant Genetic Resources (EURISCO) for in situ crop wild relatives and on-farm landrace data.

Identifying in situ areas with useful adaptive traits

This report highlights important traits that are currently sought by farmers and breeders in Europe and identifies some in situ crop wild relative and landrace populations that are likely to contain them based on predictive characterization.
