Tobacco germplasm are of different ‘types’, with large numbers of accessions in each type. In order to effectively manage this tobacco germplasm information, a user-friendly menu-driven software has been developed based on Visual C++ and MS-Access. The system allows the user to store, modify and update germplasm information as and when required, and represents a decision-making tool.
