Nielsen, Bent J. (2004) Threshold levels for seed borne diseases in organic cereals. DARCOFenews (3).
Seed borne diseases can cause serious problems in organic seed production where there is no control methods implemented in practice. Current practice in organic agriculture is to analyse the seed and to discard the seed lot if the infection by diseases exceeds the threshold levels.
There is no tolerance list specific for organic agriculture. In Denmark we use the same threshold values as recommended in conventional agriculture for seed treatment.
