Preserve your precious seeds

How we preserve seeds

Seed storage is all about preserving the germination rate. Traditionally, seeds have been stored in an environment with optimum stable humidity level in combination with cold temperature. New scientific insights have proven that an extremely low oxygen level (anoxic environment) is in fact more effective in maintaining the germination rate, compared to storage in cold rooms.

With vQm you can create THE ideal storage conditions for your valuable seeds:

  • Stable moisture content, due to high barrier liners
  • Anoxic, hermetic environment after flushing with nitrogen, in combination with our multiple layer and extremely low gas permeability liners
  • Vacuum: optional
  • Cold storage: not required, optional
