Data Management in Community Seed Banks

Community Seed Banks (CSBs) collect and record different types of data that can be stored and analysed to support actors in managing crop diversity. Databases are efficient tools to store and manage information in CSBs. A survey was conducted to identify how DIVERSIFOOD seed savers ́ and farmers ́ networks manage their data: ProSpecieRara (PSR) in Switzerland, Réseau Semences Paysannes (RSP) in France, Rete Semi Rurali (RSR) in Italy, Red Andaluza de Semillas (RAS) in Spain and Arche Noah (AN) in Austria. The findings of this survey are presented in this factsheet.
