Crop Descriptor Lists

This series is a set of individual descriptors used for the description of germplasm of a particular crop or species. Given the wide diversity of our crops, a descriptor list provides a reference point to help distinguish one accession from the other. It can be used by researchers as well as extension workers. The descriptor list provides passport data, characterization data and preliminary evaluation data. Information for development of descriptor list are abstracted from the International Plant Genetic Resource Institute.
