Seed Research and Breeding

SeedSuccessful plant cultivation begins with high quality seed, but plant breeding is a lengthy process. Did you know that it takes several years of testing to identify superior seeds and varieties?

Seneca's Agricultural Research and Breeding Programs are charged with developing pea and bean varieties that meet the needs of our internal green vegetable production for canning and freezing.

The breeding program develops sugar snap pea, shell pea, and snap bean varieties that possess the best-possible flavor, color, texture, appearance, and overall quality.
