In 1986, the National Clonal Germplasm Repository for Tropical Fruit and Nut Crops was initiated as a joint cooperative project between the USDA/ARS, National Plant Germplasm System and the University of Hawaii at Manoa, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR). The unit was federalized in 1989 and became part of the National Plant Germplasm System.

The USDA, ARS, Tropical Plant Genetic Resources and Disease Research (TPGRDR) unit at the Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center (PBARC), Hilo, HI distributes small quantities of tropical fruit and nut crop germplasm to scientists for research, education and crop development in universities and research centers.

Mission: To conduct research to enhance agricultural sustainability and crop resistance to pests and disease by developing new technologies that integrate classical and molecular approaches, to use multi-disciplines approaches to provide innovative technologies, protocols, and fact based support to environmental sound, economical beneficial end-products. 1
