The Pros and Cons of Planting Whole Seed and Cut Seed Pieces – A Spud Smart Webinar & Podcast


The whole seed model has been used in Europe for some time and is becoming more popular in the United States. The practice has had low adoption in Canada; however, that may change. Is a whole seed system possible for Canada? This webinar examines the possible advantages and challenges to planting whole seed and cut seed pieces. Guest speakers will also discuss whole seed size distribution and seed sizing capabilities. Whole seed commercial trial results will also be reviewed as well as next steps for the industry.
