Storage duration

What kind of seeds are better for a seed bank?

Hi Isaya. Local seed banks are generally established to conserve local varieties of crops that might not be available from a market or seed store. It really depends on which crops or plants are most important to you and your community. I recommend our Best Practice Note #5 “Seed Storage in the Tropics” – http://edn.link/bpn-5
