Fresh Peas: Botany and Genetics

Date: September 17th, 2021. Speakers: Duane Falk (University of Guelph and Mimosa Research Farm)


WATCH THE WEBINAR

Description: Pisum Sativum has a foundational place in our understanding of genetics and how traits are passed from one generation to the next. What began in an Austrian monastery in the 1800s -- when Gregor Mendel experimented with peas to formulate his genetics theories -- continues today in both formal research settings, and on farms and in gardens across the country. Join us for this conversation about why we love to study peas, and what the current plant breeding priorities and projects for this plant are in Canada and beyond. This webinar is for farmers and gardeners who love to grow and experiment with peas, as well as save their seeds.
