This booklet is a guide to creatively think about planning and conducting participatory evaluation of underutilised genetic resources to increase crop diversity in sustainable farming and food systems. It incorporates the experience of the DIVERSIFOOD trials to evaluate underutilised crops and the lessons learned on how to plan and conduct such trials, including practical consideration and tips to facilitate their execution out of the controlled conditions of experimental stations while still obtaining detailed and relevant information.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:A wide range of crop genetic resources that are currently underutilised and/or could form the basis of new cropping approaches to respond to both climate change and social changes in food requirements and uses.
What solution does the tool offer?:Reintroducing genetic resources with a status of underutilisation can trigger benefits in provisioning
agroecosystem services and supporting local, high-quality value chains in the overall framework of agroecological systems.
