Summary in the original language of the document

Practical recommendations
The following tests have been originally introduced in Austria exclusively for organic varieties:
- Weed suppression: the rate of ground coverage, the plant height during stem elongation and the leaf inclination are important.
- Nitrogen efficiency: the ability of the crop to produce as much protein as possible with the offered nitrogen: measured by the grain protein yield (dt/ha).
- Resistance to Tilletia caries: seed of the varieties inoculated by a mixture of spores of different origins.
Nowadays all varieties are classified in their nitrogen efficiency.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:Variety testing under organic conditions is performed differently in the European countries. If an organization is planning to introduce or to modify the testing system, it is important to know about well-approved characters in order to describe the adaptation of a variety to organic farming conditions in the best way.
What solution does the tool offer?:In Austria knowledge has been accumulated in variety testing under organic conditions in wheat since 1995.
Many characters are important under organic as well as under conventional conditions. The descriptions of organic tested varieties could influence the importance of the characters for the conventional varieties, too.
