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.
