Organic vegetable breeding

New varieties for the modern breeding conditions on organic farms!

Organic breeding involves both nonprofit initiatives and companies. It takes up to 15 years before a new variety is available. Breeding takes a lot of time, money and work. In order to finance their development work for organic farming, organic plant breeders receive support from dedicated companies, foundations and private individuals, and generate license income.

The task is complex: The selected plants must be wellsuited to the conditions on the organic farms.

The new varieties should therefore

  • convert nutrients well
  • show a high resistance to diseases
  • be good at dealing with climate change
  • provide good yields
  • and taste great!
