Did you know that almost half of the world’s carrot seeds are being produced in Oregon? That’s because carrots there enjoy dryer weather and isolation from their wild relatives. Though they are a staple food across Canada, evaluating, breeding, and saving seed from carrots can be uniquely challenging in many Canadian climates. Take a look at the Seed Saving & Selection for Carrots Factsheet to learn more.

This webinar will address topics such as variety trials, participatory plant breeding and seed saving. This webinar will include presentations de Petra Page-Mann (Fruition Seeds), Claire Luby (University of Wisconsin Madison & Open Source Seed Initiative), Helen Jensen (Sème l’avenir/ALÉBIO) et Charlotte Giard-Laliberté (CETAB+).
