About ECPD

The European Cultivated Potato Database (ECPD) is an online database of potato varieties. The information that it contains can be searched by variety name, or by selecting one or more required characteristics.

The information is indexed by variety, character, country of origin and contributor.

ECPD is the result of collaboration between participants in 8 European Union countries and 5 East European Countries and is intended to be a source of information on varieties maintained by them. Within the database all observations are attributed to their source.

The Database will be maintained and updated by SASA within the framework of the European Cooperative Programme for Plant Genetic Resources (ECPGR) which is coordinated by Bioversity International. ECPGR is a collaborative programme among most European countries aimed at ensuring the long-term conservation and facilitating the increased utilization of plant genetic resources in Europe.
