The good news is that extensive seed saving is fully underway. So the panic is a lot less. However the central problem lies with our food crops which are been subjected to a significant extinction bottle neck. This item paints that picture rather well.
Yet long term i am strongly optimistic. Bad practice will be replaced by good practice. The main driver will be the rising dominance of a universal organic protocol for all agriculture and what that means is engaged manpower with complete intellectual resources available.
That makes the value of any raise-able seed variety rise to a premium and potential marketing possibilities develop even if for curiosity value. .
