Online Tutorial: Carrot Seed Production  This is one of five basic organic seed production on-line tutorials available through eXtension. This course was created by Organic Seed Alliance, through a grant from Western SARE. It is based on materials from organic seed intensive workshops held as part of the 2011 Organicology conference. Includes a video of CIOA collaborator, Dr. John Navazio on the how-to's of Carrot Seed Production at the 2011 Organicology Conference in Portland, Oregon.

Power Point: Carrot Seed Production  CIOA coldaborator, Dr. John Navazio of Organic Seed Alliance and Washington State University's, Power Point presentation from the above video presentation on Carrot Seed Production.

Publication: Principles and Practices of Organic Carrot Seed Production in the Pacific Northwest  Organic Seed Alliance's 17 page manual on organic carrot seed production. This, like all other Organic Seed Alliance publications, is available for free download from their website (follow link provided). It's a great manual to print off and take into the greenhouse or field.

Publication: How to Breed Carrots for Organic Agriculture  This manual from Organic Seed Alliance teaches farmers how to breed carrots for organic production systems, including step-by-step instruction for developing breeding goals, identifying breeding material, performing breeding methods, and maintaining a new variety for quality and uniformity.

Webinar Recording: Breeding Carrots as part of the Northern Organic Vegetable Improvement Collaborative (NOVIC)  COIA Collaborator, Dr. John Navazio of Organic Seed Alliance and Washington State University, presents on carrot breeding principles specifically within the NOVIC project. This is a recording of a live webinar broadcast by Organic Seed Alliance and eOrganic from the 6th Organic Seed Growers Conference on January 19 - 21, 2012 in Port Townsend, Washington.

Webinar Recording: CIOA Research Update CIOA collaborator, Dr. Phil Simon of University of Wisconsin-Madison and ARS, presents a research update from the CIOA project at the 7th Organic Seed Growers Conference on January 31, 2014, in Corvallis, Oregon.

Webinar Recording: Breeding for Positive Microbial Interactions  CIOA collaborator, Dr. Lori Hoagland of Purdue University, presents with Jude Maul of the USDA, and Walter Goldstein of the Mandaamin Institute on breeding for positive microbial internactions. This recording does not specifically cover organic carrots, but similar principles will be applicable to the COIA project. This is a recording of a live webinar broadcast by Organic Seed Alliance and eOrganic from the 6th Organic Seed Growers Conference on January 19 - 21, 2012 in Port Townsend, Washington.

Webinar Recording: Breeding for Nutrition  CIOA collaborators Dr. Philipp Simon of University of Wisconsin-Madison and USDA-ARS along with Dr. Jim Meyers of Oregon State Univesity and Walter Goldstein of the Mandaamin Institute on breeding programs working with classical breeding methods (non GMO) to breeding nutritionally superior crops.

Webinar Recording: Carrot Improvement for Organic Agriculture  CIOA collaborators present project results from the first three years of CIOA, advancements in breeding for nematode resistance, and insights into the genetic component of plant response to beneficial microbiota and implications for organic farming systems.

Webinar Recording: Location and Genetic Influence on Carrot Field Performance and Flavor  An overview of the CIOA project and update on research presented by Dr. Philipp Simon at the Organic Agricultur Research Symposium 2015 held in February of 2015 in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Online Guide: Pigment Power in Carrot Color - How Pigments Promote Good Health  A guide by CIOA collaborator, Dr. Philipp Simon of University of Wisconsin-Madison and USDA-ARS's, on the health benefits of carrot pigments.

Online Article: Plant Pigments for Color and Nutrition  An article by CIOA collaborator, Dr. Philipp Simon of University of Wisconsin-Madison and USDA-ARS, on the human health benefit of pigments found in carrots and other plants.
