Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: May 1, 2015
End Date: Apr 30, 2020
To conduct cooperative research related to the evaluation, characterization, and preservation of cultivated tropical/subtropical plant genetic resources that are of mutual interest.
ARS and the Cooperator will exchange propagating material (true seed, budwood, herein referred as germplasm), of tropical and subtropical crops and ornamental plants. Germplasm will be increased in the greenhouse or field for testing and evaluation for specific traits (i.e., disease resistance, enhanced yield and fruit quality) of interest or as commercial cultivars.
