Seed and Planting Material Information and Technology

Welcome !

In this area we give priority to collecting, processing and disseminating technical information on the availability of seed and planting material, multiplication technologies and distribution of samples of improved varieties for experimental purposes.

The Seed Information System (SIS) is a useful instrument to support development and emergency programmes with technical information on quality seed supply and production sources. We are expanding it and including it in the World Information and Early Warning System on Plant Genetic Resources (WIEWS).

For further information please contact Messrs. Menini, Sgaravatti, and/or Sikora, AGPS.
