INCREASE – Intelligent Collections of Food Legumes Genetic Resources for European Agrofood Systems

INCREASE Citizen Science Experiment – Registration deadline extended!

Registration for the participation of the 2nd round of the Citizen Science Experiment is now open until 15th March 2022.

The “INCREASE CSA” App is free to download from all digital platforms in different languages and must be used exclusively to register.

As part of the experiment, each participant will receive seeds of diverse old common bean varieties to grow and take care of while documenting their development through uploading photos and scoring traits in the “INCREASE CSA” App. This enables the INCREASE team to evaluate the characteristics of these old varieties and eventually enhance agrobiodiversity in Europe as part of the research project INCREASE.

More information on the project and the experiment can be accessed on the INCREASE website and through the CSE explanatory videos.
