The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security are proud to offer their 7th season of our Participatory Plant Breeding (PPB) program in collaboration with the University of Manitoba!

Through this program, farmers work with early generations of wheat, and oat populations and adapt these varieties to their ecological farming conditions. Farmers involved in this program receive support on seed distribution, selections, cleaning, and on related agronomic questions from experts in the field.

“Proper seed selection under this program values the farmer and actually has our concerns at heart. Feeling part of a bigger picture and longer term view really makes me look to the future with hope and optimism.” – George Wright, Castor River Farm (PPB Oat farmer since 2013)

To learn more about the PPB program see the following link. Farmers interested in developing new, regionally-adapted, organic populations of oat, and wheat, please contact iris.vaisman@prairieorganicgrain.org.
