Genesys has a large database of descriptor definitions and many of them refer to the same trait, but are categorized under a different crop or there are slight differences in the description, but not the meaning.
For example, we have 64 published "Plant height" descriptors. Similar descriptors can be linked/combined to form a "super descriptor". A super descriptor may be crop-specific. Individual descriptors are linked to the super descriptor and each of their
terms is associated with one term in the super descriptor.

Descriptors and is instrumental for building the database of
These could be combined into a super descriptor with:

Each term of a descriptor is mapped to exactly one term in the super descriptor. The super has terms that are more broadly defined and applicable to many crops:
|Brown||Brown splash or grey, Tan brown||Brown||Brown|
|Black||Blue to black, Blue to black spots or mottle||Black||BLACK||Black, imperfect Black|
|Mottled||Mottled, Mottled and speckled||Buff|
