Cabbage production in Slovenia has a long tradition. Domestic varieties are bred from autochthonous population from different parts of Slovenia. The characteristics of domestic varieties (e.g. for sauering) are important for Slovenian consumers. On the other hand hybrid cultivars are uniform, give much higher yields and they are resistant to different diseases.
Numerous autochthonous varieties have been developed during centuries of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) cultivation in Slovenia. In the Slovene Plant Gene bank (SPGB), maintained at the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia, 177 accessions are included that were obtained from various parts of Slovenia in the nineties of the last century.
Small fruit Gene Bank, as a part of Slovenian plant gene bank (SRGB) includes monitoring and evaluating of autochthonous small fruit plants in situ; collecting and evaluating of autochthonous small fruit plants in the experimental orchard of the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia at Brdo pri Lukovici; collecting of old and new varieties and researches on autochthonous plant material.
Geographical location, climate and historical affinities are the main factors that have contributed to creating a diverse assortment of grapevine varieties in the area of Slovenia. The grapevine varieties (Vitis vinifera L.) can be described at several levels, using different methods.
Collecting and preserving the genetic pool of the genus Vitis is an important task that we have in Slovenia systematically addressed already in 1980.
The maize gene bank at the Agronomy Department of the Biotechnical Faculty in Ljubljana is one of the oldest and the most comprehensive plant gene banks, COLLECTIONS in Slovenia. The first maize populations were collected in early 1950s. Presently, in our gene bank, there are 587 maize genotypes.
Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry of Slovenia is the umbrella interest organization of natural and legal persons in the Republic of Slovenia engaged in agriculture, forestry and fishery. Its central task is to protect and represent their interests, to consult them and accelerate economical and environment friendly activities.
This Regulation of this Government of the Republic of Slovenia, which is composed of 75 articles and eight Annexes, establishes maximum levels of pollutants in waste disposal, compulsory treatment and other conditions for the disposal and the conditions and actions related to the design, construction, operation and closure of landfills and treatment after their closure.
