Acquisition of germplasm

  1. Targets of acquisition:

    1. Germplasm currently kept by units within the country.
    2. New varieties bred by breeding programs.
    3. Germplasm acquired from international exchange.
    4. Germplasm collected by teams to meet specific demands.

  2. When germplasm materials are imported, they have to be examined for quarantine purposes so as to make sure they are infection-free and viable for reproduction and distribution.
