NordGen is responsible for all plants that can be safely propagated with seeds. However, the responsibility for safeguarding vegetatively propagated plants such as fruits, berries, perennials and certain spices and herbs lies on the national gene banks in each Nordic country. The exception is potatoes, which NordGen preserves in vitro – as living plants.
