New Strain of Certified Organic Okra Seeds, Developed on Small Family Farm in Northeastern Oklahoma    (Posted Mon, Feb 6 '12 at 07:25 UTC)

Friday, February 10th my family and I will be packing up for the 6th annual Oklahoma Plasticulture Conference, where I will be speaking of how we developed our new strain of Certified Organic okra called 'Heavy Hitter'. This new strain has produced as many as 200 pods per plant in a single season. Some of the plants grew over 60 branches! The mean circumference measurement of these plant's 'trunks' were over 8" inches!

For more information regarding these plants, go to my Project: Developing a new strain of crop-food plants | RocketHub

Micah Anderson, Plasticulture Specialist for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, said there are 13 programs scheduled for the day covering everything from soil health to available grants for people wanting to get involved in plasticulture.


?This will be the single largest gathering of experts in the field of plasticulture and small farming operations we expect to see this year,? he said. ?We will not only cover production and marketing, but also financial assistance and insurance issues.?


The Moore Norman Technology Center is located at 13301 S. Pennsylvania in Oklahoma City. For more information call (405) 522-4330. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and the program will begin at 9:00 a.m.

If everything goes well this year, I should have seeds available for sale in 2013. OSU is helping me to develop seed increase this Summer. Right now, all my seeds are set in reserve to the University, for research and development.

Hey fourteenmilecreek,

We are neighbors. We have a farm in Park Hill and another in Webber Falls.
We are also plant breeders.
We have been growing, farming and breeding for many, many years.

I remember 2011 very well.
2012 has not been very kind either.

We build a cheap hoop house for $200 in materials, and set them up in a day.
We have build 4 of them so far.
They are 12x16 but that is plenty big for starting okra seed.
If you want to learn how to do it your self, see the free plans and pictures on my website.

Good luck, and if you have any questions let me know.
