Description: 
´┐ŻBetter Seed Through Genetic Preservation,´┐Ż has been the motto for our firm from the start. We have Shifted our focus from an agronomic paradigm to an ecological one which has created success on a scale in restoration projects never experienced. Grasping the difference in purpose and genetics between agronomic and ecological concepts is critical for the producer. End-users and producers should have a unified communication chain rather than a disintermediated commodity production process because separating production from the restoration project will not work. The final pieces of the complex puzzle of ecological restoration, now, must find market functions that can support the technical weight of an ecological system approach - not yield per acre, not largest restoration site size, but sustainable and robust plant communities into the future.
