Welcome to NOVIC
NOVIC is a collaborative that joins researchers and organic farmers in Northern states to address their seed and plant breeding needs. The collaborative includes researchers and educators from four universities, Organic Seed Alliance, and the USDA. NOVIC is partnering with organic farmers to breed new varieties, identify the best performing existing varieties for organic agriculture, and educate farmers on organic seed production and plant variety improvement.
To learn more about NOVIC's breeding objectives, variety trial results, collaborators, and other news, please visit the official NOVIC webpage.
