Inventory coding system for germplasm
headline bar

New inventory codes have been created to indicate source of GSOR seeds.  The six-digit code shows the location, year, season, and purity of seed. 

1 2 3 4 5 6

1 = location (A-Arkansas, T-Texas, P-Puerto Rico, G-Greenhouse in Arkansas)

2-3 = Year (last two digits of production year(s)

4-5 = Season (FAll, WInter, SPring, SUmmer)

6 = Purity (1-panicle, 2-plant, 3-bulk)

Examples of this coding:  A11FA3 = Arkansas, 2011, Fall, Bulk harvest

P12SP3 = Puerto Rico, 2011/12, Spring, Bulk harvest


All germplasm shipments will display the inventory code for germplasm.
