Strengthening organic breeding

Organic breeding is the basis for a self-determined, independent further development of the organic sector

Despite this urgent need, the number of organic breeding initiatives in Europe is limited and the future of young organic breeders is insecure due to insufficient fragmented project based funding. 

This initiative will contribute to boosting organic breeding in Europe by promoting:

  • extended and intensified network among and between organic plant and animal breeders
  • linkage between organic breeders and value chain actors
  •  increase mentoring programs and resources for young organic breeders
