In 1974 the Council of Ministers of the European Communities established a Standing Committee on Agricultural Research to advise the Commission on a programme of Agricultural Research.

The first programme started in 1975, while a second programme was launched in 1979 for the five year period 1979-1983.

The Standing Committee on Agricultural Research has advised the Commission on both programmes. Within this framework a programme on resistance breeding and use of genebanks has been set-up as one of 10 subjects. This programme (with a limited budget) is managed by a programme committee in which the ten member countries are represented by their nominees, one per country. The programme committee started work in 1978 by selecting priorities for crops and subjects. Several working groups have been set up to prepare descriptor lists as a basis for future work.
