URBANA, Ill. – Organic farmers are part of the fastest-growing food sector in the United States, yet breeding efforts have lagged, leaving farmers with few options for seed. Scientists, led by a group from the University of Illinois, are teaming up with farmers across the region to develop and test new maize cultivars with the goal of bringing high-quality, diverse options to the organic marketplace. And now, interested farmers and members of the public can learn more during a series of “aMaizeing” field days and workshops.
