Published: 13 Nov 2023
Abstract: In 2007, the Agricultural Extension Service "Sombor", in cooperation with the Provincial Secretariat for Agriculture and the Ministry of Agriculture, launched the Pilot Project Let's Preserve and Protect Old Varieties of Vegetables. The goal of the project was to preserve old domestic varieties of vegetables that are traditionally grown in our area, and their survival is endangered with greater commercialization of vegetable production. They participated 22 primary schools with 3163 students. In this project were collected 5296 samples over three weeks. After collecting, the samples were each individually determined and sorted by plant species, marked, prepared for sowing and recorded in the sample database. Today, in 2022, over 1000 samples of old varieties and populations of vegetables and other plant species are being maintained within this program. A couple of years ago, we began to deal more seriously with old varieties and deepened research on plant species of peppers. This paper will present the phenotypic and morphological characteristics of interesting varieties of indigenous varieties of peppers These varieties are excellent for further production and testing in laboratory conditions and also for organic production. With this project, forgotten plant species, varieties and food populations have been returned to production.
