Summary

The chapter deal with the fertilization practices in organic farming and how this affect the requirements for optimized crop genotypes for organic farming. Organic farming does not just lead to generally lower nutrient input, also nutrient sources and timing of nutrient availability is different from conventional farming, leading to different conditions for crop growth. This affects the optimal plant characteristics to breed for, and the way breeding should be performed.
