    February 2018

    In our annual flower and vegetable issue, Seed World speaks to four vegetable farmers about their work and the challenges they face. We provide an update on the latest information in regards to sweet pepper breeding for yield, resistance and what’s on the horizon. As Valentines Day approaches, take a peak into the world of chocolate and how public and private entities work together to improve the production of cacao. And on the cover is Phyllis Himmel, who is leading the Collaboration for Plant Pathogen Strain Identification (CPPSI) to harmonize global plant pathogen identification. We hope you love our February issue.
