Technical Abstract: The North Central Regional Plant Introduction Station (NCRPIS) is one of the primary active sites in the U.S. National Plant Germplasm. Nearly all of the national collections of Apiaceae, with the exception of Apium (celery), are conserved at the NCRPIS. The NCRPIS's Apiaceae germplasm collection is divided for management purposes into two groups, Daucus and Umbels. The Daucus collection includes 11 species and over 700 accessions, with 506 accessions available for distribution. The collection of umbels includes 30 different genera and 900 accessions. The largest holdings are of Coriandrum (coriander), Petroselinum (parsley) and Anethum (dill). These germplasm samples are available for research purposes at no cost to the user.
