Carrot Breeding

I was working and couldn't attend this but here is the video looks like. It is a eorganic carrot breeding seminar about an hour and 37 minutes long.

I haven't watched it yet.

My own attempts at carrot breeding would be extinct if not for volunteers. It strikes me as a limited grex. I also have Joseph's carrot landrace which I grew for seed for snake river last year and which is also a component of my own volunteering grex.
Western Montana garden, glacial lake Missoula sediment lacustrian parent material and shallow 7" silty clay loam mollisoil topsoil sometimes with added sand in places. Zone 6A with 100 to 130 frost free days
