Pingtung Seed and Seeding Research Center

■Vision: The center of research and production for tropical crop varieties and healthy seedlings in Taiwan.

■Major programs:

  1. Improving of seeds/seedlings propagation and production techniques of tropical crops and related studies.
  2. Collection, preservation and exploitation of genetic resources for tropical crops.
  3. Study on Production Mode of Healthy Seedlings.
  4. Seeds/seedlings production of agricultural crops and horticultural crops.
  5. Developing DUS testing methods for tropical plants.
  6. Other seeds/seedlings related research.
