Preparations are under way to undertake the first collecting mission for local genetic resources of date palm from Merawe area in the Northern state of Sudan. A field genebank is being prepared to conserve such collections at Hudeiba Research Station in River Nile state. The mission is planned to collect off-shoots of the known local cultivars, which are mainly of dry and semi-dry dates. Previous experiences in the region and the world are warmly welcome and will be very much helpful to us in this regard.
