NOVIC, or the Northern Organic Variety Improvement Collaborative, is a four-year USDA-OREI funded project that partners 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. The collaborative includes researchers and educators from four universities, Organic Seed Alliance, and the USDA. To learn more about the project, visit http://eorganic.info/group/5751
