Ohio Organic Farmer Researcher Network: Variety Trials at Johnny’s Selected Seeds

Jan 4, 2024, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Ever wonder how seed companies determine what seed varieties to offer customers? Or how seed companies determine what seeds might do well where? Join us for a presentation from Dana Hilfinger of Johnny's Selected Seeds to find out how they coordinate seed variety trials. Then participate in a discussion on how our group can get some seed variety trials in the ground in 2024. What varieties might you be interested in trialing and why?  

About our Network 

Farmers, educators, researchers, and other interested individuals are welcome to join us on the first Thursday of each month to discuss a variety of topics related to organic production research. If you have questions or ideas, please contact one of our group leaders: Johnnie Speicher (OEFFA), Denise Natoli Brooks (Central State University), or Cassy Brown (Ohio State).
