Grain session at CA Seed Summit

Hello all,

I wanted to make sure that you knew about the grain seed session that will be happening this Thursday at the California Seed Summit.

We will have presentations and engage in roundtable discussions on

  • Breeding trials (led by Allison Krill of UC-Davis),
  • Quinoa trials and breeding (led by me, Jared Zystro),
  • Grain seed management (led by Monica Spiller of Whole Grains Connection),
  • and Grain seed cleaning infrastructure (led by Rachel Britten of Mendocino Grain Project).

It is happening online via Zoom from 1 to 4 p.m. PDT on Thursday, March 25th. You can register for free here:

You are also welcome to join us for the rest of the week. Today’s topic is plant breeding, Wednesday is seed economics and marketing, and Friday is harvest and cleaning equipment and strategic planning.
