More seeds for

Almost 90,000 food crop seed samples have arrived at the "doomsday vault" in the Arctic Circle, as part of its first anniversary celebrations.

The four-tonne shipment takes the number of seeds stored in the frozen repository to more than 20 million.

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, built 130m (426ft) inside a mountain, aims to protect the world's food crop species against natural and human disasters.

The £5m ($7m) facility took 12 months to build and opened in February 2008.

You know that anything that Monsanto is involved in is SURELY for your benefit.

I love this idea. It is a fantastic idea. All nations should be establishing Arks for genetic diversity.

However, I don't trust Monsanto with anything. It is too likely for them to do something nasty - like wipe out all of specific species and then make you pay to use "their" seeds. Which of course they'll do something to to, or make laws to make growing anything else illegal.

I hope any nation with sense is either setting up their own, or have plans in place to force these operations to ante up if something unpleasant were to happen.
