Ex situ fruit genetic resources


An Access data base will document all fruit genetic resources in Germany ex situ as well as in situ, including their critical evaluation and formulation of potential need for action for their protection.


Project aims:

- Promotion of sustainability in agriculture. Creation of a concept for the coordination of registration and conservation of resources ex situ and in situ present within the country's boundaries.

- Elaboration of a status report on resource volume, state, need for action.

- Complete registration of all ex situ collections, based on the Federal list of varieties of fruit species (BOSV), edited by the Institute of Fruit Breeding (IOZ).

- Critical evaluation and correction, complementation of existing data.

- Complete registration of collections thus far not included, following the predefined data base structure.
