Hybrid vs Non-Hybrid Seeds

Until recently, gardeners and farmers typically saved seed from their crop yields for planting the following year. It was a healthy and natural way to grow food.

With the onset of agribusiness came the tunnel-visioned focus on crop yield and the resulting experimentation with hybrid seeds. Hybrid seeds are the offspring of two deliberately crossed, distinct parents of the same species. The sole focus is creating a seed with the highest possible yield. Unfortunately, hybrids have many weaknesses. You need to buy new seed each year as saving seed from hybrid plants doesn’t guarantee the same output. You also MUST use pesticides and fertilizer as the plants have poor resistance to disease and poor hardiness. You also use more water than you would with non-hybrid seeds. Unless you have a massive operation with little competition, using hybrids is a quick way to go out of business. And regardless of who you are, you destroy the soil and ecosystem.

Non-hybrid seeds, on the other hand, are open-pollinated tend to be hardy, resistant varieties of plant that have stood the test of time. They are more flavourful. And you can save seed and replant the following year with reliable results. Unfortunately, hybrid seeds are the most common seed variety used in gardening and agriculture today. But we can change that!
