Description

Genebanks have been and will continue to be vital for global biological diversity and food security in the long run, said genebank experts at a recent interview with the Global Landscapes Forum. The virtual session focused on how important it was for genebanks to carry out their work in the scenario of the COVID-19 crisis. Dr Vania Azevedo, Head, Genebank, ICRISAT, said, “Genebanks are the basis of all agricultural research. We ensure that from sowing and harvesting to processing, the seeds stay viable for years to come.”
