Summary

Practical recommendations
• Inform local farmers about the catalogue and loaning services.
• Encourage producers to multiply and produce these seeds organically.
• Inform consumers about on the importance of traditional varieties.
• Create a regional traditional plant varieties’ register to include also those that are in process to be registered in the National Plant Variety Office.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn from experiences in Spain - preserving traditional varieties.
What problem does the tool address?:The Mediterranean region has a rich traditional agriculture with many crop varieties. We need to recover their
use in the fields to ensure the future of the agrarian sector and stop the loss of biological diversity in the agrarian
systems.
What solution does the tool offer?:Valorization of traditional varieties
Valencia’s Agriculture Department aims to valorise local traditional non-commercial varieties via consumer awareness
and a Traditional Varieties’ Catalogue and a seed loan system. The Catalogue is a participatory online tool, where farmers can find information on the whole range of already identified traditional varieties of the Region of Valencia and can also add information on cultural and growing aspects and share information on varieties that still haven’t been included.
Multiplying, saving and exchanging organic seeds
Public experimental stations in collaboration with organic farmers multiply and exchange organic seeds.
