Webinar: Rutabaga – Biennial Seed Cultivation

This session was recorded as part of the Bauta Family Initiative for Canadian Seed Security’s 2021 Seed Webinar Series.

Description: 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
