The Workshop on Potentialities and Challenges of Breeding for the Vegetable Organic Systems will take place at the University of Almería, Spain, on 28th November 2019.
The new European Regulation 848/2018 for organic production implies the derogation of previous European regulations on the matter and makes it imperative the development of organic seed varieties under strict organic conditions. This sets new opportunities but also considerable challenges for scientists and the seed industry. The development of new breeding approaches and a wise integration of old ones is necessary.
This Workshop aims to clarify the actual EU landscape for the organic sector and understand how breeding can help bridge the perspectives of the seed industry, the organic farmers, the consumers and other stakeholders.
The Workshop will cover the most relevant topics with regard to the new organic breeding landscape through the view of first-line industry representatives and researchers.
Registration is now open (Registration fee: 30 € regular inscription, 10 € students).
