Taro harvesting and keeping it for next season

Taro is something which grows nicely without giving much attention and I really like its taste. Normally, I put some seeds at the harvest time and these plants also were grown by such Fukuoka method. Felt soil is bit tight, may be should add more organic materials or should grow a leguminous cover crop. Last time after harvesting, I kept the seeds in a jute sack and by the time it was planting time, i.e june, lots of seeds had gone bad. So this time, thought of keeping the seeds in soil itself. So in a rubber basket, kept some soil and then put the seeds and above that again, soil was put. That way, the seeds will be completely covered by soil, have to see how does the seeds find this storage.
