Revised Multi-Crop Passport Descriptors (MCPD V.2) published

The FAO/Bioversity Multi-Crop Passport Descriptors (MCPD V.2) are out!

These descriptors are the result of a thorough revision of the publication originally released by FAO/IPGRI in 2001, which has been widely used as the international standard to facilitate germplasm passport information exchange. In this improved version, the 2001 list of descriptors has been expanded to accommodate emerging documentation needs, derived inter alia from the entry into force of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture and its Multilateral System for access and benefit-sharing, and from technological changes such as the broader use of GPS tools.

The descriptors are compatible with Bioversity’s crop descriptor lists, with the descriptors used by the FAO World Information and Early Warning System (WIEWS) on plant genetic resources (PGR), and the GENESYS global portal.

    Hey, I dont even know how I ended up here, but I thought this site was great.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you’re great writing skills. Thank you.

  2. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve
    had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform. Thanks!
