Different crops in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, 1999

Collectors: Baimatov, van Soest, Chapurin and others


Following the first joint expedition to Uzbekistan in 1997, a second multi-crop expedition was conducted in August 1999. This expedition was a joint mission between the Academia of Sciences of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, the N.I. Vavilov Research Institute of Plant Industry (VIR) and the Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN). The mission was funded by CGN, with received financial support through the Dutch Seed Trade Association (NVZP). In Uzbekistan the team included 4 members whereas in Kyrgyzstan the team was extended with two Kirghiz researchers.
The expedition collected both on markets and in wild vegetation. Although the mission concentrated predominantly on the collection of a number of vegetable, crops several forages could be also sampled during the mission.

In 'Documents' you will find a short report of the expedition and a list of all accessions collect during the expedition. The collecting forms are ordered by their crop, within a crop the forms are ordered by collection number. The group 'Other' contains all forms with collection numbers higher than 149, which were noted on another type of form and are ordered by their collection number.


Collecting forms

The forms may read: "German-Netherlands potato collecting expedition to Bolivia in 1980", this sentence is to be ignored. The "collector's No." on the upper right of the forms (preceded by "NUK"), is the link to the data in the Excel list ("COLLNUMB").
CGN does not have carrot, Fritillaria nor watermelon collections; therefor those data were never entered in our documentation system.
