One characteristic of process oriented organic plant breeding is that all breeding activities from the initial crosses up to final variety propagation are performed under organic growing conditions, allowing the plant to interact with its target environment across all generations. However, it is often argued that it is sufficient to select under conventional farming and test the released varieties under organic farming conditions.
