The National Forest Seed Variety Center is an agency affiliated with the Korea Forest Service. The National Korea Forest Seed Variety Center was established on August 12, 2008 from the reorganization of Forest Seed and Variety Research Center of the Korea Forest Research Institute. Our center consists of one supporting team and two departments - the Department of Plant Variety Protection and Department of Seed and Seedling Management as well as 4 branch offices. Our center manages 925 ha of seed orchard.
We hope to realize the vision of NFSV to improve the system for plant variety protection and increase productivity of seed and seedlings up to 100 percent by 2030. In order to do so, we will carry out core tasks- to promote the development of new varieties by establishing a system of protection for forest varieties, to set up a system of national management for forest seeds and seedlings, to increase its productivity, to establish a system of management for forest genetic resources and promote its use.
