The course for all those who want to acquire an extensive knowledge of seed cultivation in vegetables!
Seed production for garden and arable plants is an old craft that has been forgotten with the modernization of agriculture. At the same time, the diversity of varieties has also declined sharply. In the intensive seed cultivation course all aspects of successful seed propagation, both for simple and more demanding crops, are explained and shown. Within the framework of the course, a small paper is written about a selected crop.
This course is suitable for hobby gardeners with some experience in vegetable growing (3-5 years) and for green professionals.
