Four industry-driven pilots to incentivise use of organic seed in Italy, the Netherlands, Hungary and Romania are analysed. The booklet identifies four main areas in which incentives can be offered: pre-financing of organic seed through the value chain, offering access to varieties requested by the market, expanding the range of locally adapted cultivars and improving seed quality. The case studies provide details of how the initiatives originated, what incentives were involved and their outcomes, as well as the farmers’ point of view. It provides insights for anyone interested in financing innovation in the organic seed supply chain.
