CGRD Version 5.1 (old version)
In 1999, the COGENT Steering Committee took the decision to release the coconut genetic resources database (CGRD) into the public domain, in order to make accessible and disseminate this useful information, and to create public awareness about coconut genetic resources (source: minutes of the 8th COGENT Steering Committee held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam 20-22 September 1999).
Here is the previous version of the Coconut Genetic Resources Database (CGRD version 5.1). A new version (CGRD 6.0) was made available on the COGENT website in July 2012, so users are strongly recommended to use this new version. Presently 24 genebanks from 23 COGENT member-countries are conserving 725 unique populations with 1374 living accessions.

They may be occasional difficulties in sending updated files to the COGENT secretariat (problem encountered only once on an Indonesian notebook). In this case, compress all the files in the directory c:\cgrd5.1.\dbfs into an archive (using PKzip or Pkrar free softwares for example) and send this archive to the COGENT secretariat.
