The Crop Trust has supported 11 projects in Nepal

  1. Barley: The Crop Trust supported Agriculture Botany Division, NARI to regenerate and characterize 356 barley accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops. 172 accessions are safety duplicated in the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
  2. Barley: The Crop Trust supported the Agricultural Botany Division (ABD) and the Nepal Agriculture Research Country (NARC) to evaluate 264 barley accessions for leaf and yellow/stripe rust resistance resistance with the objective of identifying potential sources of genes and making them available to breeders for use in breeding resistant barley varieties in Nepal.
  3. Beans: The Crop Trust supported the Agriculture Botany Division (NARI) to regenerate 396 accessions of common bean with the aim of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops.
  4. Chickpea: The Crop Trust supported the Agriculture Botany Division, NARI to regenerate, characterize and safety duplicate 267 chickpea accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops.
  5. Grasspea: The Crop Trust supported the Agriculture Botany Division to regenerate, characterize and safety duplicate 100 grass pea accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crop.
  6. Lentil: The Agriculture Botany Division, NARI, Nepal received funding from the Crop Trust to regenerate and characterize 210 lentil accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops. 171 accessions are safety duplicated in the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
  7. Maize: The Crop Trust supported the Agriculture Botany Division (NARI) to regenerating 250 maize accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crop. 122 accessions are safety duplicated in the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT).
  8. MilletsThe Crop Trust supported Agriculture Botany Division (NARI) to regenerate, characterize and safety duplicate 265 accessions of finger millets with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crop.
  9. Rice: The Crop Trust supported the Agricultural Botany Division (ABD) and the Nepal Agriculture Research Country (NARC) to evaluate rice for flash flood tolerance, blast and bacterial leaf blight resistance with the objective of identifying potential sources of genes and making them available to breeders for use in breeding resistant rice varieties in Nepal. 69 accessions were identified as potential sources of resistance to blast and bacterial leaf blight.
  10. Rice: The Crop Trust supported the Agricultural Botany Division to regenerate and characterize 824 rice accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops. 496 accessions are safety duplicated in IRRI.
  11. Wheat: The Agriculture Botany Division (NARI) Nepal received support from the Crop Trust to regenerate and characterize 350 wheat accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops. 210 accessions are safety duplicated in CIMMYT.
