Becoming more concerned with long term seed storage. I clearly need to figure it out. I bought two airtight/watertight cases meant for GPS fishfinders. Also bought a bunch of desicants and oxygen absorbers. Thinking I may vacuum seal the packs in a few Mylar bags then store those in the cases with the desicants and absorbers. Put both cases in a dedicated mini fridge.
Maintaining the quality of seeds as they gradually age in storage is a challenge. Wageningen University & Research has developed a low-cost technology to prolong the shelf life of seeds.
