Seed Production and Variety Development for Organic Systems

Jorge Luis Alonso31/07/2005

The USDA has also funded workshops to teach farmers the principles of participatory breeding for organics, to increase the availability of organic seed. In 2005, however, although there are breeding programs underway, no seed varieties bred specifically for organic production are commercially available.
