Hybrid Seeds: Are They Worth the Cost?

What are hybrids and why do they cost so much? This workshop will explain what hybrid crops are, how they are developed, and the potential advantages they bring to your farm. We will discuss how the seed is produced, and whether the additional costs of production are worth the advantages that growing hybrid crops brings.
