This tutorial was developed in 2016 – 2017 in partnership with the Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) to supplement on-farm training in seed production. Organic seed production is a potentially lucrative opportunity for farmers, yet the specialized skill set required to grow high-quality organic seed serves as a barrier to entry for many farmers. At the same time, persistent gaps in the organic seed supply make seed farmers training opportunities all the more essential. This course offered a multimedia learning experience with readings, a series of six webinars and assignments.
In 2021 OSA will host an updated course on its own platform. In the meantime, check out OSA’s self-guided seed production tutorial here!
