Genetic collections qualify for storage at the National Seed Storage Laboratory. Advantages in using this facility are: (1) collections are maintained intact with continuing high viability; (2) seed distribution to interested scientists is made on request; (3) the depositor is kept informed as to the viability of collections; and (4) the Laboratory assumes the responsibility through contract arrangements for reincreases in case viabilities decline.
