Genebank Resources on the Web (GROW) webinars are presented through a partnership between the Crop Trust and CGIAR Genebank Platform to provide thought-provoking discussions within the genebank community.

The webinar series explores topics ranging from emerging technologies, operational efficiency, collecting to seed longevity, policy, and use. GROW aims to tackle difficult questions and provoke discussion on important genebank- related details and themes.

Webinars are bi-monthly and pre-registration is required to attend.
