German Gene Bank for Seed Propagated Ornamentals

German Gene Bank for Seed Propagated Ornamentals

The Federal Plant Variety Office has been responsible for the development and coordination of the German Gene Bank for Seed Propagated Ornamentals since August 2011. It aims to create a cross-border decentralised network of various collections and inventories of seed propagated ornamentals.

Since 2012, accessions of the gene bank have been stored, propagated and their characteristics documented at the Hannover testing station by the Federal Plant Variety Office. Information, descriptions and images of the accessions are published in the German Gene Bank for Ornamentals database.
