Development of organic vegetable varieties was done through participatory breeding in Regions 4A, 4B, 8 and 12 in the Philippines. Farmer co-operators were trained and seeds of segregating lines and populations which served as their starting materials were provided to them. The materials were evaluated in their respective farms along with continuous selection and seed production. Co-operators were able to select lines of various vegetable crops and seed produce them.
