Taxonomic Information on Cultivated Plants in GRIN-Global

Concluding Remarks

The Agricultural Research Service invites and encourages those interested to access and utilize GRIN-Global data over the Internet. Errors or discrepancies in the taxonomic data that are uncovered should be reported to NGRL to ensure their correction. We would like to cooperate with other individuals and organizations active in the taxonomy of cultivated plants to further our common interests in arriving at a more stable, scientifically accurate, nomenclature. We hope these efforts can lead to the development of an internationally recognized standard reference for scientific names of cultivated plants.

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.
