Native Seeds/SEARCH is excited and proud to unveil a new online portal for exploration of the rich crop diversity maintained by the NS/S seed bank. The ADAPTS platform is designed to connect you with varieties in the NS/S collection that are most relevant to your unique needs. Are you a gardener in Phoenix looking for watermelon varieties from locations with similar climates, or a farmer interested in high elevation beans? ADAPTS can help point the way.
ADAPTS was developed with generous grant funding from the Gila River Indian Community and represents part of a larger effort by NS/S to develop resources for climate change resilience in the Greater Southwest.
