Whether you’re interested in producing seed on a commercial scale, or just saving enough for your own use, getting seed out of the field and into a clean, storable state can be challenging. Fortunately, seed producers are some of the most innovative engineers in agriculture. In this workshop, seasoned growers will discuss how to refine your seed-cleaning skills. They will share photos and stories about the best equipment they have bought, modified or built to effectively harvest, thresh, and clean seed on their farms. The discussion will be followed by an outdoor, hands-on demonstration of several techniques for processing both dry- and wet-seed crops.
