MHR Foundation of India Seed banks primarily involve in selecting, collecting, and storing seed varieties. we also form seed exchange networks with NGOs and community seed banks. They also form ex situ storage facilities. we help in seed exchange, on farm conversation with experts and farmers, training and capacity building for farmers and continuous monitoring of cultivation.
A seed bank is a type of gene bank where seeds of different crops and rare plant species are stored for future use. Seed banks are created to maintain and protect biodiversity, where samples of all species are collected and stored. In case seed reserves elsewhere are destroyed, the seed bank is opened to provide seeds to farmers at defined quantities for growing plants.
