Storing Wheat Answered

Hi,
Our group is buying about 1.5 tons of wheat.  We are packing it in 5 gallon seal-able buckets after doing the dry ice thing.  We intend ti use some of the wheat as seed in the spring (probably many springs).
QUESTION:  Does the use of dry ice affect the viability of wheat?  If so- is there an alternate long-term storage method we should be considering?

Thanks

Your local Agricultural Extension Service is a good place to start, or ask on a preparedness forum.
