The mission of the CRF is to contribute to preserve and sustainably use of genetic diversity of native plant varieties and neglected old varieties to be used in research, breeding and capability, named in general Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA). One of the CRF’s activities to achieve this objective is the conservation of the base collections, as a security duplicate, of all the seed collections, maintained by the Spanish Genebanks Network. At July 2022 that collection was composed by 45000 accessions mainly vegetables, identified by passport data established following the FAO/Biodiversity Multicrop Passport Descriptors including: identification code in holding institution, taxonomic information and common and local name, data of the collection site, biological status, acquisition sources and storage condition. Following a general classification of the PGFAA, quantitatively, the most important group are those of vegetables, grain legumes, winter cereals, spring cereal and forages; regarding the biological status are, mainly, landraces, wild species and commercial varieties. More information about this collection and a template to request this material are available at

Área de Estudo CRF's active base included accessions collected in 118 different countries
Controle de Qualidade Seed status regarding germination and viability is checking every ten year for most of the conserved species. Germination tests are performed according to international standards for germplasm banks.

Descrição dos passos do método:

  1. The methodology to obntais different depending on the type of material to be collected. • Collecting cultivated varieties: - Prospecting to determine the collection area - Contact with local agriculture staff and potential donors of local varieties - Schedule germplasm collecting mission to make collection at harvest time of after farmers harvest - Collect seed of crop species from farmer's fields, stores or local market - On-site collection of passport data, uses, agricultural cycles and other interesting information - Uniquely identify each sample. - Package the materials in optimal conditions until delivery to the genebank facilities. • Collection of wild species - List the species of interest - Apply, for each species and location, for the requested collection permits - Locate the distribution of these species on the basis of bibliographic information. - Establish a work schedule according to the phenological cycles of the target species in order to identify the species and to collect at the optimum stage of seed maturation. To optimise this information, it is interesting to contact local botanists. - Field seed collection of the species of interest at the optimum stage of maturity, avoiding elements in poor condition and contaminating seeds. - Collect information of passport data, including, if possible, nearby plant communities. - Uniquely identify each sample. - Package the materials in optimal conditions until delivery to the genebank facilities. A part of the seeds conserved coming from regeneration/multiplication essays carried out at CRF facilities of other colaborating's institution. In these cases, seed are obtained after the field growing cycles most accurate for each species.

Propósito The aim of this active seed collection is it use in research, breeding and training or direct use. The collection includes mainly local varieties or landraces of crops to be used on food and agriculture, wild relatives, mainly crop wild relatives and breeding material and obsolete commercial varieties. The most important group, with 71% of the total of more than 22,600 accessions includes local varieties collected in Spain. All this material is of current and potential interest as a source of genes that allow the design of new varieties to give response the needs of the new agricultural systems, both in the search for responses to climate change and to the new demands of users. The recovery of local varieties of interest is another of the uses of these materials.
Descrição da manutenção The seeds of the CRF's active collection are stored at low temperature and maintained with a low moisture content (<7%). This collection is stored at temperatures of -4ºC in airtight resealable glass containers with humidity indicator as a control- measure.
