The secondary evaluation of plant genetic ressources is done in accordance with specialists of other structural units at the IPK and joint institutions at home and abroad. Secondary evaluation data as well as some results of the primary evaluation have been captured since 1995 in computerized form and archived using the software packages Visual FoxPro and Excel.

Very diversified evaluation data, particularly resistance and quality features, morphological, phenological and other characteristics have been stored for cereals, legumines, vegetables, medicinal and spice plants; all of these allow - with the help of a key field - the connection between the evaluation data and the passport data, the primary evaluation data as well as the quality data of the seed stored in the cool storage house of the genebank. This considerably amplifies the service provided to the users of the genebank.

For every crop, an overview is provided consisting of file names (in Word (doc) and Excel (xls) format) along with the corresponding evaluation data.

The desired files can be downloaded as zipped files (Winzip format).
