Abstract:

Conservation of ornamental crops is the foundation to protect the valuable native and wild relatives of ornamental germplasm to secure the future needs of researchers and breeders. This paper analyses the floriculture wealth of PGR and also their availability to breeders for the major ornamental crops germplasm available across globe. The available number of accessions held in the different genebanks located globally would help breeders for further introduction and utilization in ornamental crops varietal development programmes. The ornamental crops research was carried out by utilizing large diversity in germplasm available indigenously and imported through NBPGR. More than 1293 new accessions of diverse ornamental crops were acquired since last three decades (1982-2016). Majority of the accessions introduced were from USA (55%) followed by UK (9%), Slovenia (6%) and the Netherlands (5%). ICAR-NBPGR also registered 38 accessions of rose, gerbera, jasmine, anthuriums, carnations, china aster, gladiolus, orchids, chrysanthemums and crossandra. Search of new genetic sources from the already collected and conserved germplasm is greatly appreciated with reference to the utilization of germplasm in breeding programmes. The genotypes developed with significant promising traits from the valuable conserved germplasm play a major role in the varietal development. Native genetic resources provide less variability consequently introduction of genetic resources to diversify the yield, color and size of ornamental plants is a priority.
