This booklet addresses all the areas where intervention is needed to support innovation in production and adoption of organic seed, namely:
- policy and regulation;
- cultivar testing and seed multiplication;
- innovative breeding strategies;
- socio economic aspects related to seed production.
The aim of this document is to highlight any challenges to reaching 100% use of organic cultivars and to offer advice on how to address them.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:100% organic seed in EU: how to get there
What problem does the tool address?:Organic seed, bred specifically for organic agriculture, is essential to its success in terms of crop yield, stability and quality of the end products. However, organic seed in Europe is not available in the needed quantities and, even when it is available, it is often bred within the conventional sector, based on criteria suitable for conventional agriculture,
What solution does the tool offer?:This booklet summarises the outcomes of the LIVESEED project on how to boost innovation in the production of organic seed and how to enable use by farmers.
