Summary

Practical recommendations:
● To develop an Action Plan to Stop Genetic Erosion that includes investing in research on genetically
diverse and organic seeds, promoting their production and use and allowing their exchange and
commercialization.
● Create a work group of the organic sector, bringing together national and regional competent authorities
for organic farming and for seed legislation.
● Create regional registers for traditional plant varieties including those that are in process to be registered
in the National Plant Variety Office, and test acceptance among producers and consumers.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:What is limiting the use of organic and new genetically diverse seeds in Spain?
What problem does the tool address?:Spanish Regulation for the Registration of varieties limits the use of genetically diverse seeds and establishes
higher requirements for their registration than for genetically homogeneous material.
What solution does the tool offer?:Specific regulations for organic and genetically diverse varieties (traditional and new) should be developed according to the Plant Genetic Resources Law. They shouldn’t have to comply with the Commercial Varieties’ Regulation for registration, production and marketing.
