The NPGS distributes plant germplasm to professional scientific research individuals and organizations, and verified plant breeders. Requests from producers and educators will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but only when NPGS germplasm that is not readily available from commercial sources is a justified requirement. NPGS germplasm is not available for individual, home, or community gardening. Requests to support educational objectives are typically considered only for college-level projects. Please view the short video on the NPGS for more details.
