I don't know how it works now.  When I took part, the primary goal was
preservation of species.  By matching people who grew different clones of
the same species, it was possible to expand the gene pool.  As I recall,
the division of seeds was typically 1/3 to the one who set the pod, 1/3 to
the one who sent the pollen, and 1/3 to the ASI seed bank.  

To get first-generation halfbreds, you'd have to find someone with a
surplus of tetraploid aril pollen -- and I can't make any suggestions on
that point.
