2017 Participatory Plant Breeding Program

The Bauta Family Initiative on Seed Security’s Participatory Plant Breeding program, run in collaboration with the University of Manitoba, is looking for farmers that would like to be involved in helping to select early generations of new organic wheat, oat, and potato populations. This project is a great opportunity to develop a population suited to your growing conditions, learn how to engage in on-farm plant breeding, and be part of a participatory program where farmer selections are absolutely essential to creating new populations and varieties.

For more information about the progress of the PPB program and the work that has been done over the past few years by the University of Manitoba and the Bauta Initiative, please visit the following links:

If you would like to participate in this project or would like more information, please contact Iris Vaisman at iris.vaisman@prairieorganicgrain.org.

The PPB program is a collaboration between the University of Manitoba, the Bauta Initiative, breeders at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), the Organic Science Cluster II, and organic farmers across the country. The PPB program of the Bauta Initiative builds on the innovative work that has been conducted by the University of Manitoba and other AAFC researchers on organic wheat, organic oat, and organic potatoes and we are proud to be a part of one of the most innovative plant breeding programs in Canada.
