One of our focuses in ECOBREED is the development of organic varieties and breeding material with improved stress and disease resistance, resource efficiency and quality. Varieties and candidate varieties are tested and evaluated together with farmers under organic conditions. Our partner Secobra Saatzucht GmbH is working to improve the availability of varieties and seeds for organic farming.
The varieties resulting from the project will be promoted under the trademark “ecobreed IMPROVING CROPS” and made recognizable to farmers.
