Conserving Leucaena ssp. germplasm collection

The Conserving Leucaena ssp. germplasm collection project aimed to import unique Leucaena germplasm from University of Hawaii and collect seed to provide long term benefit to the Australian Leucaena industry by providing accessions that can be used in plant breeding programs to develop novel traits like cold tolerance, psyllid resistance and sterility.
