Plant Genetic Resources (PGR) contribute enormously towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals of food security, poverty alleviation, environmental protection and sustainable development. The genebank at ICRISAT headquarters holding 120,006 germplasm accessions is one of the world’s largest repositories of its mandate crops - sorghum, pearl millet, chickpea, pigeonpea and groundnut, including wild relatives and six small millets, from 144 countries. ICRISAT regional genebanks in Niger, Kenya and Zimbabwe conserve mostly working collections and mini core collections.
