With 128,155 germplasm accessions assembled from 144 countries through donations and collection missions, it is one of the largest international genebanks.ICRISAT established regional genebanks at Nairobi, Bulawayo and Niamey to facilitate easy access of regional and global diversity to NARS partners in the region.
