Summary: All gardeners and farmers should be plant breeders, says author Carol Deppe. Developing new vegetable varieties doesn't require a specialized education, a lot of land, or even a lot of time. It can be done on any scale. It's enjoyable. It's deeply rewarding. You can get useful new varieties much faster than you might suppose. And you can eat your mistakes.
Authoritative and easy-to-understand,Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties: The Gardener's and Farmer's Guide to Plant Bree
ding and Seed Savingis the only guide to plant breeding and seed saving for the serious home gardener and the small-scale farmer or commercial grower. Discover:

  • how to save seed and maintain varieties

  • how to conduct your own variety trials and other farm- or garden-based research

  • how to breed for performance under organic or sustainable growing methods

They need to save more of their own seed, grow and maintain the best traditional and regional varieties, and develop more of their own unique new varieties.Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties: The Gardener's and Farmer's Guide to Plant Breeding and Seed Savingshows the way, and offers an exciting introduction to a whole new gardening adventure.
