The Spanish Inventory of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture provides information on more than 75000 ex situ accessions conserved in the Collections Network of the Spanish Program for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (NPPGR). This documentation activity, which contributes to the conservation and use of the rich plant genetic heritage of Spain, is a priority for the Second Global Plan of Action for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.
