Summary translation

KĀ KĻŪT PAR BIOLOĢISKO SĒKLAUDZĒTĀJU

EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:According to the principles of European Regulation 834/2007 (Art 4), organic farming should use organic inputs. Consequently, vegetative propagating material and seed used in organic agriculture should also be organic. However, the amount of organically produced seeds and vegetative propagating material in Latvia is still insufficient. According to the new Organic Regulation 2018/848 that will enter into force in 2021, only organic seed should
be used by the 1st of January, 2036.
What solution does the tool offer?:Expanding the network of organic seed growers will increase the availability of organic seeds and vegetative propagating material on the market.
Remember: Only certified seeds may be sold!
Essential things in seed production: Seed stock of high quality, provided by the breeder or representative of the breeding company; precise and scrupulous work on the field, in seed preparation facilities, and in warehouses; good equipment for seed cleaning and preparation.
