Passport data - refers to
accession ID and data recorded when the sample was originally collected
(i.e. IRGC accession no., variety name, altitude, collecting location,,
etc.). These data were received from the seed donor together with the
Morpho-agronomic data - refers to
the morphological and agronomic descriptions of an accession (i.e. grain
lt., grain width, panicle lt., days to maturity, etc.). These data were
observed and gathered at IRRI experimental fields by GRC scientists.
Evaluation data - these data are
the results of screening the accessions for their resistance to
different insect pests (i.e. stem borer, leafhopper, etc.) and diseases
(i.e. bacterial blight, blast, etc.), and tolerance to abiotic stresses
(drought, flood, etc.). It also includes data on grain quality. The
screening was conducted by scientists in various departments at IRRI.
