In 2011, the Northern Organic Variety Improvement Collaborative (NOVIC) continued developing and evaluating varieties of carrots, sweet corn, peas, broccoli, and winter squash for organic agriculture. As a partner in NOVIC, OSA participated in field trials, breeding projects, and education in Washington, Oregon, California, and Minnesota. We also compiled preliminary organic variety trial reports, now available on NOVIC’s website, to assist farmers in finding the best varieties for their production system.
The new NOVIC website is your one-stop shop to learn more about the project and upcoming events, access variety trial data, and more. Bookmark: http://eorganic.info/novic/
