General Information - Working Groups

Working groups covering aspects of legume genetics, agriculture and uses are summarised here. Working groups typically have members drawn from several organisations, concentrate on particular issues and topics in legume R&D and produce reports or position statements. Working groups are commonly sponsored by or associated with organisations having broader remits than the groups themselves (e.g. genetic resources databases).

Grain Legumes Working Group 

Supported by the European Cooperative Programme for Plant Genetic Resources

The Grain Legumes Working Group, formed in 1991, is a focus for coordination of grain legume genetic resources in Europe. It holds meetings and publishes reports on conservation and management of genetic resources. The reports (e.g. cover shown to right) can be downloaded from the web site as pdf files. Coordinators can be contacted via the web site.
