Asia and Pacific Seed Association

The Asia and Pacific Seed Association and AVRDC - The World Vegetable Center have had a working relationship since 2004. APSA members can obtain germplasm from the AVRDC genebank. Plant breeders in both organizations exchange research data on the development of heat- and drought-tolerant vegetable lines with good pest and disease resistance, and APSA supports aspects of the Center's molecular marker research. An annual workshop hosted by AVRDC provides a forum for discussion and collaboration.


The <strong>Asia and Pacific Seed Association</strong> (APSA) was established in 1994 with the aim of promoting quality seed production and marketing in the Asia and Pacific Region. Today APSA is the largest regional seed association in the world.  APSA members include national seed associations, government agencies, public and private seed companies, and associates.
