The German Gene Bank Rose

Origin

The development of the German Genebank for Ornamental Plants began with the establishment of the German Genebank Rose in 2009 at the Europa-Rosarium Sangerhausen as the first sub-network.
This national genebank network consists of individual collection-specific networks.
Further partners are the German Genebank Rhododendron, the Genebank for sam propagation species as well as the network plant collections of the hobby societies.
The German Genebank for Ornamental Plants is coordinated by the Coordination Centre for Biological Diversity (IBV) of the Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food (BLE).

.

The common goal is to secure the enormous diversity of ornamental plants for the future. In Central Europe alone, there are currently about 80,000 species and varieties in the standard assortment of traders. The extraordinary importance of the EUROPA-Rosarium Sangerhausen as the largest rose collection in the world is reflected in the collection stock of over 8,600 rose varieties and wild species.

Deutsche Genbank Zierpflanzen

The city of Sangerhausen already gave the Europa-Rosarium an open-ended and free mandate in 2005 to establish a rose gene bank with the associated reference collection. Within the framework of a model and demonstration project (2004 - 2007) funded by the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV), the functional prerequisites for the establishment of the German Rose Genebank were created. The state of Saxony-Anhalt is participating in the stabilisation of the gene bank network through follow-up projects with limited time and funding. In recent years, EU funds from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) have been obtained. However, for a sustainable consolidation of the Rose genebank according to national and international quality standards, open questions of permanent funding by the federal and state governments urgently need to be clarified.

Goals

  1. The collection and conservation of genetic resources in the rose in a scientific, long-term, sustainable and cost-effective manner and this with special regard to
    • German varieties,
    • Varieties with socio-cultural, local or historical reference to Germany
    • Varieties and wild species with important horticultural characteristics for research and breeding purposes.
      Top priority is given to the authenticity verification of rose varieties and rose wild species.
  2. To promote utilization through characterization, evaluation, and documentation, and by providing propagation material and associated freely available data.
  3. The use of synergies and mutual support in all matters of assortment preservation and collection management.
  4. Mutual support and cooperation in training, continuing education events, public relations and projects.
  5. Supporting the implementation of the National Technical Program for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Plant Genetic Resources of Agricultural and Horticultural Crops in Germany as part of the German Genebank for Ornamental Plants and
  6. Supporting international cooperation and mechanisms and conventions related to biodiversity, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGR).

Organization

  1. The German Genebank Rose consists of legal entities and natural persons who form a network within the framework.
  2. The network consists of collection-preserving (SP) and supporting (UP) partners as well as the BLE. Within the network, the cooperation of the partners is coordinated by the EUROPA-Rosarium (ERS) of the city of Sangerhausen.
  3. The German Genebank Rose appears externally under the common logo of the German Genebank for Ornamental Plants.
  4. The collection of the Deutsche Genbank Rose consists of collection parts of the SP, which are documented by the ERS Coordination Office as the total holdings of the Deutsche Genbank Rose. The existing ownership of the collection parts as well as any existing rights of use remain unaffected.
  5. Participation of Deutsche Genbank Rose in legal transactions and thus any external legal action is excluded. Accordingly, the legal representation of Deutsche Genbank Rose is not assigned to any partner.
  6. Exclusively for the admission of new partners, it is agreed that Deutsche Genbank Rose shall be represented solely by the ERS Coordination Unit for the conclusion of the corresponding accession agreements; the ERS Coordination Unit shall conduct the necessary contract negotiations; however, amendments and additions to the agreement shall require the prior written consent of all existing SPs and the BLE.
  7. Technical and scientific advice to the German Genebank Rose is provided by the advisory board of the German Genebank for Ornamental Plants, which has yet to be established.
  8. The integration of the German Genebank Rose into the German Genebank Ornamentals is carried out by the ERS coordination office.
  9. The integration of the German Genebank Rose into further national as well as international cooperation is carried out by the coordination office of the German Genebank Ornamental Plants, the Information and Coordination Center for Biological Diversity (IBV) of the BLE.

 

The inclusion of the German Rosarium GRF in Dortmund as a collection-preserving partner in the German Genebank Rose in 2011 is an important milestone for the consolidation of the existing genebank network. With a collection of over 2,200 rose varieties and species, Dortmund has the second largest rosarium in Germany. At the end of 2012, an agreement was concluded with the Bundessortenamt as a further collection-preserving partner. The Bundessortenamt can boast a stock of around 1,300 varieties. Other institutions and private individuals will join the German Rose Genebank as collection-preserving or supporting partners.

As a first step, in February 2012, after careful examination, the Europa-Rosarium committed its collection stock of about 1,740 varieties from German breeders on more than 2,200 sites in the Rosarium to the German Genebank Rose. This year, in coordination with the German Rosarium Dortmund, selected varieties of this collection will be included in the genebank's inventory. Furthermore, the coordination office is currently carrying out the comparison of the documented variety stock of the Bundessortenamt in order to obtain a meaningful basis for the future definition of accessions of this institution as genebank stock.

Within the German Genebank Rose, the so-called Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is used when plant material from the genebank stock is transferred for research, breeding or training. For all other uses, the transfer takes place without further conditions. A large part of the varieties is freely available in the trade regardless of this.

framework conditions

In the "National Technical Program for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Plant Genetic Resources of Agricultural and Horticultural Crops"of the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) defined the framework conditions and central tasks of Germany in the field of plant genetic resources. In a fundamentally updated version, the changed framework conditions at national and international level as well as experience and progress from previous implementation were taken into account.

The National Inventory PGRDEU is responsible for the central documentation of plant genetic resources of agricultural and horticultural species in Germany.

The Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is intended to facilitate access to plant genetic resources. It is an instrument for national recognition and implementation of international obligations arising from the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGR) and other international and national framework conditions. For the ornamental plants sector, the Downloadarea visible MTA adjusted to a minor extent.
