This weblog documents the activities of Pacific Agricultural Genetic Resources Network (PAPGREN), along with other information on plant genetic resources (PGR) in the Pacific.
The myriad varieties found within cultivated plants are fundamental to the present and future productivity of agriculture. PAPGREN, which is coordinated by the Land Resources Division of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), helps Pacific countries and territories to conserve their crop genetic diversity sustainably, with technical assistance from the Bioversity International (BI) and support from NZAID and ACIAR.
SPC also hosts the Centre of Pacific Crops and Trees (CEPaCT). The CEPaCT maintains regional in vitro collections of crops important to the Pacific and carries out research on tissue culture technology. The CEPaCT Adviser is Dr Mary Taylor (MaryT@spc.int), the CEPaCT Curator is Ms Valerie Tuia (ValerieT@spc.int).

Journal of South Pacific Agriculture (JOSPA)
The Journal of South Pacific Agriculture (JOSPA) is the only scientific agricultural journal published in the South Pacific Region. It is published by the Institute for Research, Extension and Training in Agriculture (IRETA) of the University of the South Pacific in Samoa and is distributed in printed and soon in electronic formats.
The publication is a recognized peer-reviewed venue for agricultural scientists and researchers to publish the results of their research. Publishing in JOSPA adds value to the curriculum of researchers in the Pacific and contributes to disseminating research results among students and progressive island farmers and fisherfolk, thus benefiting both sectors, which form the backbone of small island economies.
The JOSPA editorial board invites interested researchers to submit their papers to the following address:
