Example text

Many of the elite types have been virus−indexed and distributed to other countries including, Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Seventy six of the accessions are held as tissue culture at the SPC Regional Germplasm Centre in Suva. kava is a crop of great value in traditional ceremonies − used for making a traditional drink and for its medicinal values. It used to be grown widely in the Pacific but production is now largely confined to Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa. In recent years it has become exceptionally profitable as an export crop for use in pharmaceutical products.

While funding national research programs has always been low on the national priority list because benefits are often a long time being realised, money from donor institutions can help start, maintain, and justify research projects of national and regional importance, and costs and risks can be shared in regional research projects such as the TaroGen project. Regional training programs and funding for these programs, particularly at the postgraduate level, are needed to allow effective staffing of germplasm conservation installations.

There are also some 400 accessions of taro. The germplasm conservation status of Pacific food plants is outlined below: coconut: International Coconut Resources Network (COGENT) was formed in 1992 to coordinate and promote the collection, evaluation and conservation of coconut diversity in Asian and Pacific regions. Material is conserved in 11 genebanks and at least 142 accessions in eight Pacific island countries. In five of these countries, viz. PNG, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Samoa, there is serious erosion of genetic diversity.
