Northern Organic Vegetable Improvement Collaborative (NOVIC)

The Northern Organic Vegetable Improvement Collaborative (NOVIC) brings together researchers and organic farmers in northern U.S. states to address seed and plant breeding needs. The collaborative includes Organic Seed Alliance, USDA, and researchers and educators from four universities. NOVIC is partnering with organic farmers to breed new varieties and identify the best existing varieties for organic agriculture, and to provide education on organic seed production and variety improvement.
