Bioverita sees itself as a counterbalance to genetic engineering and the consolidation in the seed industry with fewer and fewer suppliers. The range of organic varieties for organic farming must therefore be increased.
Bioverita is always about organic breeding – whether that is vegetables, cereals, maize or coming soon, apples!
Personal opinions on organic breeding work
“Organic breeding is the future! Biodiversity, climate, animal welfare, health, clear water, soil fertility – organic breeders offer everything what our world needs . Within one or two generations – organic is the new standard for food and farming.”Bavo van den Idsert, Director Bionext-Niederlande
“With our commitment to consistent breeding for organic farming in the area of breeds and varieties, we meet the social expectations of an agriculture and food industry that benefits future generations. In addition, we meet consumer expectations with the production of authentic quality organic regional produce."Dr. Christian Eichert, Managing Director Bioland BW and Advisory Board Bioland Handelsgesellschaft mbH
“Organic farmers need plants that perform well and provide optimal yields under the local conditions of their farm. Artificial enhancement through fertilization and chemicals is neither possible nor desired! Thanks to organic breeding we can get seeds and seedlings that cope well with the conditions on our organic farms. So we not only harvest outer but also inner quality.”Urs Brändli, President Bio Suisse
“In organic agriculture we strive to work in a cycle. An organic farming system that supports itself and requires little external input is the ideal. In addition to the soil as a foundation, seed and the genetic potential in animal husbandry are the basis for a healthy system. It is an important goal of organic breeding to help shape this as a farmer and to be in control of it.”Stephanie Strotdrees, Organic farmer and Vice-President of Bioland e.V.
“Those who want a wide range of varieties, sustainable and resilient food systems and thus food sovereignty, support the organic breeding of animals and plants. The purchasing departments of whole-food companies and the demands of their customers set the direction and express personal appreciation. Let’s take brave steps!”Elke Röder, Managing Director BNN
“Seed is cultural property! Without the work of the independent breeders, the variety of our cereals will continue to decline and dependence on a few global corporations will increase. That is why Spielberger Mühle has been supporting and promoting bio-dynamic breeders in their valuable work for a sustainable and diverse future for many years.”Volkmar Spielberger, Managing Director of Spielberger GmbH
