The study aims to conserve plant genetic resources Uwi as an alternative non-rice food. The study is conducting by exploration, identification can be followed Uwi plant germplasm conservation in the form of a collection of advanced research. The results showed that in Ponorogo obtained 32 asesi Uwi plant (Dioscorea sp). Taken from several districts in Ponorogo. Of the 32 species of plants Uwi (Dioscorea sp). The identified into five groups, namely: Dioscorea aculeate L by 5 asesi (gembolo, gembili, gembolo mancung, ndulak. Dioscorea alata L by 20 asesi (legi 1, legi 2, ulo, lus 1, lus 2, senggani 1, senggani 2, senggani 3, senggani 4, bangkulit 1, bangkulit 2, bangkulit 3, bangkulit 4, bangkulit 5,rondo sluku, beras, cethek, sepak, duro, war. Dioscorea bulbifera L as much as 3 asesi (sembung, lader, randu alas). Dioscorea hispida Dennst much as 1 asesi (gadung), Dioscorea pentaphylla L by 4 asesi (Katak jahe,katak 1, katak 2, katak 3).
