MSBP Seed Conservation Standards

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank developed its Seed Conservation Standards in 2015 for use across the partnership. Use of the Seed Conservation Standards ensures that seeds are banked to the highest quality and maintain viability. The MSBP Seed Conservation Standards - a set of 20 standards in seven key areas - assure users of the utility of collections and provide a basis for technology transfer amongst partners and capacity development within the MSBP network.
