Learning how to produce your own seed will help ensure that your favorite varieties will continue to be available and passed on to future generations. This webinar will provide an overview of practices needed to successfully produce quality organic tomato seed. Key topics will include varietal considerations, isolation and management practices, and fermentation, storage and treatment practices that will maintain seed integrity and help reduce pathogen transmission.
