Summary

This booklet is meant to inspire farmers, breeders and seed producers to devote resources to producing organic seed. It illustrates eight success stories from five European countries.
Case studies cover the whole spectrum of farming from vegetable to fruit, cereal to potato and represent various stages of seed breeding, production and multiplication as well as a range of business set-ups: from individual farms to private seed companies, through non-profit organisations and cooperatives.
