    Management of genetic resources in Denmark

    Conservation and utilization of the genetic diversity

    Conservation of genetic diversity is done both in situ and ex situ (seed orchards). Though the genetic conservation program, the present genetic resources (diversity) are protected and secured with the purpose of potential future utilisation. Furthermore, conservation of the genetic diversity will ensure the availability of the genetic resources to be utilized for future development of improved genetic material.

    The practical utilization of the genetic resources is done through seed sources (seed stands and seed orchards) producing genetic material, an approach which meets the present requirements of owners and society, and which at the same time is capable of adapting to the expected climate change.
