ARCAD

The aim of ARCAD (Agropolis Resource Centre for Crop Conservation, Adaptation and Diversity) is to set up in Montpellier (France) a new open multi-function platform devoted to the assessment and improved use of plant agrobiodiversity in Mediterranean and tropical regions. The development of an information system and web portal to make data on germplasm collections accessible is one of the major on-going activities of ARCAD.

ARCAD is supported by Agropolis Fondation, the French foundation for Agricultural Sciences and Sustainable Development, and the Région Languedoc-Roussillon (France). It is being jointly developed by CIRAD, INRA, IRD, Montpellier SupAgro, which are four French leading agricultural science establishments, and University of Montpellier 2, in partnership with southern and international institutions.
