"Native New Yorker" strain

A strain developed using natural passive cross pollination of native tobacco, wild tobacco, and other various tobacco genetics naturalized for cultivation in New York. Grown and developed in and surrounded by native new york forest and fields, which plant material are used as fertilizer.

Plan to cross wild tobacco [7] with a couple cold hardy heirloom varieties [8] [9] [10] and a couple that I like the morphology of [11] [12] [13] and a couple found in cuba for the sodium tolerance [14] [15] [16] [17] and flowering tobacco [18]. Then let it naturalize and acclimate genetically to the northern climate.

Native New Yorker Starter Seed Mix

These seeds are mixed, cultivated, and openly pollinated. The resulting seeds are re-sown making the mixture more homogenous and cohesive over time. Different farms and gardens growing this mix should share seeds across new york to keep genetic diversity high. Even though some of these species will not naturally cross, having them and tilling them under will help prevent self-dna growth inhibition and plant roots uptake DNA so they will gain traits from the others as needed.

Oilseed crops

Oil per acre for common crops [53]

Sunflower and other oil crops, amish feed the meal after oil removed to animals [54].

Oilseed hulless pumpkin is ideal as is camelina.

Mustard seed and castor seed [55].

Freeze drying

Done so foods are more shippable and transportable while still keeping all nutrients and enzymes.
