Wheat and barley are in the focus of AGENT activities. Both represent key crops internationally grown for human food and animal feed. In Europe, the largest acreage among all crops is planted with wheat and barley. According to the major genebank documentation systems Genesys PGR and EURISCO, wheat and barley constitute the largest and third largest collection of crop seed stocks in national and international genebanks around the globe. While the AGENT goals will first be implemented for wheat and barley, the high importance of sustainability and appreciation of the FAIR principles will enable us to design solutions which readily allow accommodating equivalent data sets for any crop species subsequently.
