asian-seedAsian Seed, the official publication of the Asia and Pacific Seed Association, featured an article about the AVRDC Genebank in its March/April 2014 issue. “Diversity in the vegetable crop portfolio at local, national and global levels has powerful implications for food, nutritional and economic security as well as sustainable production,” said Genebank Manager Andreas Ebert. “Individual and community nutrition improves when diets are rich in fruit and vegetables, which supply micronutrients essential for good health. With better nutrition at an early age, children can develop into healthy, productive adults.”
