    Report of a Working Group on Forages
    This report on forage genetic resources work in Europe begins with a review of current activities, including the core collection of Lolium, and an outline of recent international developments in issues related to plant genetic resources. Presented papers are then arranged under the following headings: European Central Forages Databases (13 papers); status of national collections (7); duplications in forages collections (2); standards for regeneration (1); collecting activities (13) and research activities (6). Appendices provide information on: forage passport descriptors; a protocol for designating primary holders of accessions; guidelines for the regeneration of accessions in seed collections of the main perennial forage grasses and legumes of temperate grasslands; germplasm holdings; and safety-duplication capacities.

    Report of a Working Group on Forages
    On 23-25 October 2007 the Research Institute of Plant Production (RIPP) of the Slovak Agricultural Research Centre hosted the Ninth meeting of the Working Group (WG) on Forages. The meeting, attended by 35 participants from 28 countries, focused on the ongoing effort to create a European Forages Collection. The ECPGR Poa and Phleum databases were analyzed to identify duplicate accessions and to define the primary holders of accessions to be included in the European Forages Collection. Another highlight of the meeting was the discussion on the results of the EU-funded Fifth Framework project on “Improving germplasm conservation methods for perennial European forage species” (ICONFORS) and the influence that these findings should have on the regeneration guidelines agreed by the Group. The Group agreed to revise the standards for regeneration procedures.

    Report of a Working Group on Forages
    The Tenth meeting of the ECPGR Working Group on Forages was held on 28-29 April 2010 on the Island of Poel, Germany and was hosted by the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK), Gatersleben. The meeting gathered together Working Group members, Central Forage Database Managers and numerous observers.
    Since the 1990s the Working Group has been working towards the sharing of responsibilities in conservation and management of European forage collections. Specific mechanisms for identifying the most original samples (MOS) and holders of primary collection (PRIMCOLL) have been developed to identify forage accessions for the European Forage Collection (EFC).
    The present meeting reviewed achievements to date and made important decisions to complete the process to identify the unique European forage accessions and thus promote the goals of the initiative for “A European Genebank Integrated System” (AEGIS).
    The status of the European Central Forage Databases and their relationship to the European Plant Genetic Resources Catalogue (EURISCO) were presented and discussed. It was decided to use EURISCO as a starting point when updating information in the Central Forage Databases. In order to rationalize the identification of accessions for the EFC and reduce the workload when updating databases, it was also decided to merge several of the Central Forage Databases on the basis of the genus and the type of forage crop. Responsibilities were assigned for the resulting 11 databases.
    Several presentations dealt with on-farm and in situ conservation, and the Working Group decided to promote in situ conservation of forage crops in order to complement ex situ conservation work.
    The Working Group on Forages, of which many members are plant breeders, also emphasized the importance of the inclusion of forage crop-specific descriptors and characterization and evaluation data in Central Forage Databases.
