The newsletter, “Forages for the Future, launched in June 2016, is a first result of a meeting of experts in October 2015 in Bonn, Germany, to discuss a Global Strategy for the Conservation and Utilization of Tropical and Subtropical Forage Genetic Resources. The newsletter is published under the auspices of the CGIAR Research Program “Genebanks”; its editors are Bruce Pengelly and Brigitte Maass, consultants of the Global Crop Diversity Trust.
