New Priorities for Organic Vegetables

Canadian Organic and Ecological Plant Breeding Priorities for Vegetable Crops: 2018 Survey Report

Last year, we asked farmers what their perfect vegetable variety would look like. A blight-resistant tomato? A bolt-resistance lettuce? An early-ripening butternut? We're happy to share the answers of farmers across the country in the Canadian Organic and Ecological Plant Breeding Priorities for Vegetable Crops.

In collaboration with the University of British Columbia Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, we are pleased to provide the first assessment across Canada of the plant breeding needs and priorities of vegetable producers who use organic and/or ecological production practices.  We hope that this report helps to inform future efforts that support plant breeding, variety development, and farmer-led seed systems for organic/ecological farming in Canada.
