Grant No
Project Description
This project facilitated the collection, multiplication, characterization, and safety duplication of wheat and barley landraces in Nepal. Before the project, about 540 landraces of wheat reported in Nepal but only 210 were conserved in the national genebank; 100 barley landraces had been collected. This project aimed to collect at least 180 additional accessions of wheat and 50 additional accessions of barley. They will be characterized and conserved for safety duplication and future breeding projects.
