Mission:
The mission of the National Arid Land Plant Genetic Resource Unit (NALPGRU) is to acquire, document, maintain, evaluate, and distribute selected plant genetic resources adapted to long, warm-season and arid conditions; generate and manage associated information; provide a scientific base for its use in research and crop improvement; and collaborate with other scientists in research programs incorporating the scientific information in agricultural production. NALPGRU is also a long growing season, mild climate grow-out site for other Repositories in the National Plant Germplasm System.
