2020 OSU Dry Farming Project Virtual Field Days: Corn Breeding Project

September 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm Free

With the financial support of the Agricultural Research Foundation (ARF), we are advancing a dry farmed field corn breeding project involving the genetically diverse, Open Oak Party Mix culinary dent corn variety (Adaptive Seeds, Brownsville, OR). Additionally, we will feature a new, pilot collaboration with the Northern Organic Variety Improvement Collaborative (NOVIC), in which we are assessing a dozen corn varieties for dry farming performance and culinary quality for nixtamalization into hominy/posole and masa. We will go over the basics of our corn breeding process, including hand pollination and principles of recurrent selection – as well as discussion on agronomic and culinary qualities of diverse field corn varieties.Once registered you will be sent the login details for the live webinar.
