AS 03.22.020. Purpose of Center.

The objectives of the plant materials center, in cooperation with the Institute of Agricultural Sciences, are to

(1) assemble, evaluate, select, and increase plant materials needed in soil and water conservation, agriculture, and industry, and maintain genetic purity of these materials;

(2) increase promising plant materials for field scale testing;

(3) test the promising materials in field plantings on sites that represent soil and climatic conditions not found at the center;

(4) maintain and provide for increase of basic seed stocks of plant materials for agricultural and conservation interests;

(5) make seed and plant materials available, for a fee if necessary, in such a manner as to avoid monopolistic control of basic stocks of these materials and encourage the development of a seed industry;

(6) support but not duplicate activities carried on by state or federally funded research programs in the state;

(7) prepare, publish, and disseminate a summary report on all studies as they are completed.
