Biennials like rutabaga, are among the more challenging crops to save seed from. They require lots of space, population, and isolation distance, not to mention advanced planning and effective overwintering strategies. Join us for this conversation about best practices for biennial seed crop cultivation and selection, using the hardy, delicious, and humble rutabaga as our case study.  This webinar is for farmers who love growing rutabaga, seed growers who would like to increase their biennial seed saving, and CANOVI participants trialing rutabaga.


Speakers: Denise O’Reilly and Clint Freund


This event is part of the 2021 Seed Webinar Series run by the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, run in collaboration with EFAO.
