Spring may still seem far off, but now is the time to plan the garden, and in some cases it is time to start seeds indoors. Iowa State University Extension Horticulturists Richard Jauron and Cindy Haynes are guests and give advice and answer listener questions.
We continue now with Harvest Public Media’s three-part series on the Science of the Seed.

Iowa Public Radio’s Amy Mayer looks at how seed innovations push the boundaries of what the land can produce.
