Report of a Spinacia collecting expedition to Uzbekistan and Tajikistan: Itinerary, collected material and data

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    The CGN spinach collection is of global importance given its size and the small number of existing spinach collections. Wild relatives of spinach are poorly represented in any of those collections. Therefore, a collection mission has been performed aiming at the broadening of the genetic base of spinach (Spinacia oleracea). This report provides details on this collecting mission, i.e. the collecting of a wild relative of spinach, S. turkestanica, in its natural habitat in Central Asia, in particular in the countries Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. In addition, landraces of S. oleracea have been sampled. A number of Dutch breeding companies sponsored the mission, which is duely recognized and appreciated.
