Grant No
Project Description
This project oversaw the increase of bean and forage seeds at CIAT in order to alleviate a the genebank's difficulty providing users with all requested seed. Before the project began, 12,027 accessions of bean and 9,756 accessions of forage were in need of regeneration. Previous characterization data was confirmed, and the revised entries were uploaded onto the website; safety duplications were sent to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.
