Organic Seed School August 17

Organic Seed School
Sunday, August 17, 2014 at 8:00am to 4:00pm
Homer C. Thompson Vegetable Research Farm (CUAES) 133 Fall Creek Rd. Freeville, NY

Come learn from growers, breeders, and seed companies to better understand organic seed quality topics and how it affects your farm at the third annual Organic Seed School. The first school was organized by High Mowing Seeds in 2012.

Up to eight regional seed companies will present their new developments related to the needs of organic producers. These will include new varieties, breeding projects, seed treatments, company-specific innovations, and trialing under organic conditions.

There will also be an hour exhibition time and coffee break in which participants can visit table displays for each company and a tour of breeding plots on the farm. In the afternoon, we will have a series of moderated group discussion sessions focusing on the issues surrounding organic seed quality and availability. Bring your questions on organic seed and talk directly to the experts!

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Pre-registration is appreciated at: http://goo.gl/zpR5UG. The $10 registration fee can be paid by cash or check at the door.
