A practical guide to growing and saving seeds for organic farmers and gardeners. Saving seed is fundamental to the preservation and improvement of our agricultural biodiversity – which is dwindling rapidly if corporate consolidation of agriculture continues. For those that want to be more selective and self-sufficient in what they grow, Connolly explains plant selection, pollination, seed storage and the genetics of hybrid varieties as well as details about many of the most popular grain and vegetable crops. Organic Seed Production and Saving also discusses the issues involved in selling your own seeds as a business venture.
