Are you interested in variety trialing and selection, seed saving, and getting involved in collaborative breeding projects in the Midwest? Us, too! You’re invited to join OSA’s Michael Lordon for the Midwest Collaborative Plant Breeding Field Day in Madison, WI on August 24th. The field day will include a farm tour of University of Wisconsin-Madison’s West Madison Agricultural Research Station featuring Seed to Kitchen Collaborative projects involving tomatoes, peppers, and other crops. The event will also include educational presentations and discussions for farmers, gardeners, and students interested in regional seed adaptation and plant breeding for organic systems.
Please register using the form below. The field day is free to attend and we ask that all participants review our COVID-19 protocol prior to the event.
This event is part of the Collaborative Plant Breeding Network Development for Organic Systems in the Upper Midwest project that was funded in 2014 by the Organic Research and Extension Initiative grant, part of the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Grant number 2020-51300-32176.
