'Difficult' Seeds Project
Kew's ‘Difficult’ Seeds Project works with crop gene banks and farmers to conserve plants used for food and agriculture in Africa. The aims of the project are to improve the identification, handling, storage and use of seeds that have been described as ‘difficult’ by gene bank managers and technicians.
The species profile pages include storage information, dormancy classifications and germination protocols to help overcome problems with 'difficult' seeds.
