The Seed Bank

At the far north pole, there is the ark of Noah, which kept the seeds for the people of that time, even though all the crops on earth were destroyed. Global Seed Vault under the Global Crop Diversity Trust, also known as the Crop Trust. Institutions in different countries have stored the seeds there. Global Seed Vault has 76,127 crop seeds from India.

The Global Seed Vault can be summed up as a safe haven for humankind, even if war or natural disasters wreak havoc on the entire planet. An invaluable reserve for future use and genetic research. At the North Pole, on the Svalbard Snow Island in Norway, the chambers of the Seed Vault are underground, accessible by tunnel. There are also so-called ‘seeds of the UN’ because seeds from many countries are stored in compartments on adjacent shelves. The same seeds are not stored in bulk, but in mother seeds that can be ‘copied’. Seed Vault has the capacity to store 500 seeds (4.5 million seeds in total) of 4.5 million varieties. Currently there are 11,11,445 varieties of seeds.

It is estimated that there are 1700 seed volts worldwide. The Bakdudegan Seed Vault in South Korea is made to store the seeds and genes of wild plants. Other countries may also store seeds, but only a few use it. Although it may seem like a science fiction story that there are many undisclosed genes and gene banks on earth, it is also true. There are also geniuses in the world who store seeds of the same species in multiple safe havens. All for a better tomorrow
