This free manual is based on my personal experience in growing seeds in West Virginia and working with other seed growers in this state and other places across the U.S. since 2019. While the document benefits from my more comprehensive seed grower's manual, it also includes tips and insight for West Virginia specific commercial seed production. In addition, my work with partner farmers for this SARE grant also contributed input and information to the writing process of the document.
