Fundamentals of On-Farm Plant Breeding Course

Last month, OSA, with support fromĀ Seed Matters, hosted our Fundamentals of On-Farm Plant Breeding Course to a group of 25 dedicated students. OSA Senior Scientist and Washington State University Seed Extension Specialist Dr. John Navazio taught the 2-day workshop which covered the biology of seed production, seed harvest and cleaning, conduction variety trials, basic on-farm breeding techniques, and a field visit to see our Abundant Bloomsdale Spinach trials in the ground. A slideshow of the event is below. Please visit OSA’s event page for upcoming workshops in your area.
