Saving seeds the right way can save the world's plants

Saving seeds the right way can save the world's plants | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
Exotic pests, shrinking ranges and a changing climate threaten some of the world's most rare and ecologically important plants, and so conservationists establish seed collections to save the seeds in banks or botanical gardens in hopes of preserving some genetic diversity. For decades, these seed collections have been guided by simple models that offer a one-size-fits-all approach for how many seeds to gather. A new study, however, has found that more careful tailoring of seed collections to specific species and situations is critical to preserving plant diversity.

Quote from article ~“It’s on a pretty sophisticated computer control system that has sensors all over the place,” cofounder and CEO Viraj Puri shared with Fast Company, “and will deploy lights and fans and shades curtains and heat blankets and irrigation pumps automatically.”This is such an interesting concept and has so many great ramifications. Link the work with renewable energy and we have Win, Win and such great use of building rooftop space.....how can we engage multi layer projects to create entire city scales of food production ? United nations says in story that earth will have a population of 9 billion people by 2050 and food security is of great concern ~
