Description

The seeds will be tested initially before being put in the vault for storage at -18 degrees Celsius. They will be taken out for testing once every decade during the course of the next 100 years to determine longevity”. The five other institutions that will be participating in the experiment along with ICRISAT are National Rice Seed Storage Laboratory for Genetic Resources (NRSSL) in Thailand, National Institute for Agricultural and Veterinary Research (INIAV) in Portugal, Embrapa in Brazil, Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) in Germany and the Nordic Genetic Resource Center (NordGen) in Sweden, according to the media release.
