The vast majority of our reviews come from collaborative variety trials run using SeedLinked’s trial management software. The trials are organized by universities, nonprofits, seed companies, breeders, and SeedLinked. Farmers and gardeners participate in these trials by growing the varieties on their farms or in their gardens and submit their reviews on SeedLinked. We currently have over 5,500 growers on SeedLinked many of whom have submitted reviews on our platform. SeedLinked relies on a ‘wisdom-of-the-crowds’ principle, and our methodology is well-established in scientific literature to be more powerful for gathering grower input, speeding up breeding cycles, and creating prescriptive planting recommendations. To learn more about our scientific method, visit this page.
SeedLinked is owned and run by a dedicated team that includes a gardener, farmer, seed breeder, and more. We have a vision for a future founded on collaboration, shared data, and transparency. Applying these tenants to agriculture will build a stronger market and more resilient agricultural ecosystem, benefiting people and the environment in the present, and for generations to come.
