Czech Board on PGR

Representatives of breeders are members of the Czech Board on PGR, which is the coordinating and advisory body of the Czech National Program on PGR Conservation and Utilization. In this way they can influence the activities of the National Program and pay attention to user oriented approach of the projects. The representatives of breeders have also influence on the creation of special core-collections that are determined for more optimal use of genetic resources for different breeding aims. The chairman of the Board is also the national co-ordinator of the PGR in The Crop Research Institute (CRI). CRI coordinates the national programme on the conservation of the plant genetic resources.
