Enhancing utilization of the plant genetic resources

Enhancing utilization of PGRFA means ensuring that the resources are taken up by the different users and effectively used to improve production, productivity and returns. This can be by incorporating material into breeding programs, introducing germplasm to a given area to solve a specific constraint or even for direct industrial application. For this to happen, however, information about these resources must be readily available and their potential value well documented.

The information availed provides an informed basis for given actions right from policy making to sectoral plans and prioritization processes. The information and knowledge generated on PGRFA by the Centre as well as by other users is made available at http://www.pgrfa.org/gpa/uga/welcome.htmx
