Breeding organic vegetables

by Rowen White and Bryan Connolly, edited by Elizabeth Dyck

Breeding Organic Vegetables: A Step-by-Step Guide for Growers is a practical approach to plant breeding for farmers and gardeners. In addition to explaining basic plant breeding theory and methods, the authors cover all the necessary steps in a breeding project, from deciding on a breeding goal and finding suitable germplasm to performing selections and evaluations. Five grower-breeders also share their insights and breeding “recipes.” While this book grew out of participatory breeding projects in the Northeast, it should empower growers everywhere to breed imaginatively to produce vegetable varieties that are attractive, productive, disease resistant, and well adapted to organic systems.
