Plant Variety Protection Office - Scanned Certificates

    This dataset provides the scans of issued certificates for a variety of plants. If you know the certificate number or applicant name simply enter the information in the search box. For certificates issued between 1970 and 1999, add two zeroes in front of the 7-digit number. Alternatively, you can search by selecting a crop from the list.

    AMIS Market Database

      Statistics at a Glance provides summary tables of the main data items currently covered by AMIS (Agricultural Market Information System). There are production, supply, utilization, trade and closing stocks. Users can select a country on the world map and specify their request by selecting one of the four AMIS crops: wheat, maize, rice, or soybeans. Alternatively, users can display aggregate values for total cereals and coarse grains.

      GrainGenes, the genome database for small-grain crops

        GrainGenes is a popular repository for information about genetic maps, mapping probes and primers, genes, alleles and QTLs for the following crops: wheat, barley, rye and oat. Documentation includes such data as primer sequences, polymorphism descriptions, genotype and trait scoring data, experimental protocols used, and photographs of marker polymorphisms, disease symptoms and mutant phenotypes. These data, curated with the help of many members of the research community, are integrated with sequence and bibliographic records selected from external databases and results of BLAST searches of the ESTs.

        Cover Crop Chart (version 2.0): Helping producers choose cover crops in crop and forage production systems

          The Cover Crop Chart (v. 2.0) is designed to assist producers with decisions on the use of cover crops in crop and forage production systems. The chart, patterned after the periodic table of elements, includes information on 58 crop species that may be planted individually or in cocktail mixtures. Information on growth cycle, relative water use, plant architecture, seeding depth, forage quality, pollination characteristics, and nutrient cycling are included for most crop species.
