A CODASYL type database has been created for plant propagation records. The existence and history of plants can be recorded in such a way that details of parentage and offspring can be traced. Plants that have undergone similar treatments and events or that have similar characteristics can be located and other information assisting the management of the propagation experiments is recorded. Containing this information, the database is a model of experimental plant propagation.
