Conservation of Plant Genetic Resources

The Polish plant breeding industry is closely collaborating with public authorities in the conservation of plant genetic resources.

These activities are coordinated by the Polish Ministry of Agriculture with the participation of the Plant Breeding and Acclimatization Institute; the Institute of Horticulture, the Botanical Garden of the Polish Academy of Sciences and bigger private seed companies such as Poznan Plant Breeding, Smolice Plant Breeding, Strzelce Plant Breeding, Malopolska Plant Breeding and Danko Plant Breeding.

The activities cover one project for agricultural crops and another for horticultural crops.
