Duane Falk has been doing organic breeding work for cereals for over 30 years, and he is now applying that knowledge as the potato breeder for the BFICSS participatory plant breeding project on potatoes. Come to Duane’s farm to learn about how new potato varieties are developed and learn about the diversity of potato varieties that are already available. This is a one-of-a-kind field day in Canada and come see some of the most innovative work in organic potato breeding in the country. We’ll also get a chance to taste some of Duane’s fantastic potatoes!

No registration required – please come at 1pm if you are attending the field day!
