There are now more than a thousand genebanks worldwide involved in the ex situ storage of particular classes of crops. Since the 1970s, the 11 genebanks maintained by the centres of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) have become pivotal to the global conservation effort.

The economics of genebank costing; CIMMYT genebank; ICARDA genebank; ICRISAT genebank; IRRI genebank; CIAT genebank; Policy and management implications
