Farmers across Canada have been breeding potatoes on their farms, with the support of The Bauta Initiative, since 2013. Join our guests for this fascinating conversation about the rationale, agronomy, and policy implications of farmer-bred potatoes, and what lies ahead for farmers who are blazing a new trail of potato diversity. This webinar is for the many farmers breeding their own potato varieties as part of our PPB program, as well as everyone interested in potato breeding.
