Description

An experiment has begun in the Arctic at the Svalbard Global Seed Vault to find to how long seeds live. This seed longevity experiment will last a century, and Hyderabad-based ICRISAT has made its contribution to the experiment as well. 6 global research institutions and genebanks including the Hyderabad-based ICRISAT have contributed seed specimens for the research. This experiment, which will carry on for the next 100 years, will observe the conditions and how long seeds may be preserved.
