Digitised scan of the historical Waite Accessions book, documenting the accessions between 1960 and 1998. The book is ruled into tabular columns, noting the acquisition number, pedigree, date, variety, source and stated reason for each accession.

This book stands as a historical record of the plant breeding and crop development research undertaken at the Waite campus of the University of Adelaide dating back to the early 1960s, and contains accessions relevant to the Australian Cereal Rust Control Program and its predecessor programs. The book has been digitised by Dr Ian Dundas and members of the Waite cereal cytogenetics team, and is released openly and freely available on the University of Adelaide's Figshare data repository.
