Research Priorities: Seed Production, Selection & Breeding 

Ecological farmers in southern Ontario do not have access to an early ripening bell pepper that is available in organic seed or bred for organic production systems. To meet this need, Greta, Rebecca, Annie and Kathy are selecting red and yellow peppers while building a network of regional vegetable seed breeders!
