    Carrot Seed Development. Carrot (Daucus carota L.) develops 'umbels', groups of flowers which produce seeds. Carrot seeds are not true seeds in a botanical sense but are dry fruits called 'schizocarps'. Carrot seeds do not mature uniformly within a single plant. Seed maturation depends on the positions of flowers on the maternal plant, from. Columbia. Complete isolation between the wild and domesticated varieties is necessary to produce true-to-type seed. out carrot plants for seed production un-der ecological farming conditions in four unique climates, over the span of four years. In this first year, each farmer built.

Field information Transplanting of carrots occurs during the last week of July until end of August. Drip irrigation is most suitable for seed production. Transplanted plant population is 70 – plants/ha. U.S. vegetable seed production is located in the Pacific Northwest. Seed production is expensive and requires greater inputs and hand-labor. The economic return for the investment is also higher than for other crops. Seed Production OR – Willamette Valley, Treasure Valley, and near Madras.

Washington State is a national leader in the production of mint oil. Growers produce about 3. 5 million pounds a year on 28, acres in the Yakima Valley and the Columbia Basin.

WSDA has estimated 3, acres in mint in Benton County as of (Yakima County has o acres.). The production area, situated at an elevation of 2, to 2, feet, creates favorable conditions for carrot and other seed production. Rainfall and humidity are low. Nighttime temperatures are cool and summer day temperatures are moderate.

The area is also absent of wild carrot, which can cross-pollinate seeds and contaminate the crop. Research projects on carrot diseases, pests, and other production issues are being carried out in the Columbia Basin by WSU faculty and extension agents: 1) Gary Pelter, WSU Extension Agent, has trials on weed control in carrot seed crops in the Columbia Basin.
