The convention on biological diversity and appropriate policy on plant genetic resources in Nepal


Seminar Paper Lumle Regional Agricultural Research Centre ( 95/14): 12 pp.
The convention on biological diversity and appropriate policy on plant genetic resources in Nepal
Plant breeding has played a significant role in increasing world food production. However, the success of plant breeding depends on the availability of plant genetic variation for achieving required characteristics. It is widely accepted that plant genetic resources (PGR) are depleting because of the displacement of crop landraces by modern crop varieties and degrading natural habitats of wild species.
