Abstract

Three new types of conservation plant releases are now available from USDA Plant Materials Centers as less thoroughly tested but still useful alternatives to traditional cultivars. These "pre-varietal" releases include "tested," "selected," and "source-identified" plant material and have distinct labeling. They help meet a strong customer demand for native plant material that is available more quickly than it takes to develop and test a cultivar for a particular conservation use.
