National Collection

French breeders contribute to the long-term maintenance of the national collection of artichokes; further on, they participate in the French network of genetic resources regarding carrots, eggplant, tomato, melon, chicory, lettuce, onions and also to the MATREF network managed by GEVES. Through this participation they contribute to the maintenance of the national collections with activities relating to multiplication of material, evaluation, characterization and documentation.

They also take part in several professional associations and collaborate with public research institutes in projects focused on conservation, characterization, sustainable use and distribution of genetic resources.
