Artiklen diskuterer hvad økologisk planteforædling er og hvilke perspektiver der er for økologisk planteforædling især i relation til biodiversitet.

Summary translation

The paper presents a system analysis of the seed sector with respect to the potential of organic plant breeding. The author conclude that national and EU-regulations in combination with the financial system related to the seed sector have contributed to the decrease in diversity both between crops and within crops in modern agriculture. The decrease in biodiversity violates the aims and principles of organic farming, and leads to agronomic problems, in particular epidemic plant diseases. Hence, there is a need for organic plant breeding and supply of more diverse and more adapted varieties. However, organic plant breeding will not be profitable within the current market conditions. In order to make organic plant breeding possible, legal and logistic, solutions must be developed to bypass the current system. The author conclude that the most promising way seems to be participatory plant breeding of uncertified home saved populations rather than development of new pure line varieties approved within the official certification scheme.
