Re: HYB: question - numbering seedlings?

Most use the year of the cross. But that information is generally not useful anyway. What is important is the parentage.  Most pedigree runners don't care what form the seedling number is (and they are numerous), only that they can search for the number and/or find named cultivars that are the parents. 

What is also is consistency form of the number in the spaces, dashes and other separators that are used. Using 94 DR29X one time and 94-OM/14 another time makes it difficult for searchers.
