Abstract

Plant Genetic resources (PGR) are the most important components of biodiversity. PGR include primitive forms of cultivated plants and landraces, modern cultivars, obsolete cultivars, breeding lines and genetic stocks, weedy types and related wild species (IPGRI, 1993). Genetic variation must be conserved to combat new pests and diseases, and to produce better adapted varieties for the changing environments. Seed conservation has vital role in preservation of genetic variability, as it is simple to handle, cost-effective and capable of maintaining genetic stability over long time periods. The most important components of ex situ collections are conservation, characterization and utilization of conserved germplasm
