 Preserving the diversity of our crop heritage 
----- An Overview of the Project -----

The Scatterseed Project is a program for preserving the diversity of our crop heritage. Worldwide, the genetic variability of nearly all plant species is dwindling at an alarming rate. Varieties which have been grown by farmers and gardeners for centuries are fast becoming extinct, and plant breeders and other crop workers believe this bodes ill for the future of agriculture everywhere. The Scatterseed Project was founded to help prevent such loss. | United States Plant Germplasm System
