Why we study the flower, fruit and seed

You want to understand what you are doing.
You don't want to work like a machine.

· You sow seed in order to get a good harvest, but you want to understand how the flower produces the fruit, how the fruit produces the seed, how the seed produces the plant.

You want to know how the plant reproduces itself.

· You want to understand why you must choose good varieties, selected seed; why you must disinfect seed; how you can best store the harvest.

We must study the flower, the fruit and the seed in order to understand them better and to get good harvests.
