UK Vegetable Genebank Seed Requests

The UK Vegetable Genebank collections are available to all organisations carrying out plant breeding, research, education, training and development.

We are currently developing an online search and seed request facility, in the meantime please visit the EURISCO database to search for material - our material is listed using 'GBR006' in the Institute field.

Alternatively, the spreadsheet below contains descriptive information on accessions in our collection

Please email with requests and enquiries


We require that requestors sign and date a Material Transfer Agreement and return it to us as a formal agreement between parties prior to the despatch of seed. We reserve the right not to distribute stocks, which are scheduled for regeneration due to low seed weight and/or low germination. The only other qualifier is a request to return information to us for inclusion in the database to the benefit of other users.

We use the Standard Material Transfer Agreement (sMTA) for seed requests.

By completing the Seed Request Form, users are agreeing to receive the material under the terms of the sMTA.

Users may wish to contact Genebank staff by email prior to requesting material to check availability. In all cases, please provide contact details (preferably email) on the Seed Request Form so we can contact you promptly in case of queries.
