Seed is an ongoing topic in the Section. We are working on three strands of this at present:
- How can biodynamic plant breeding be financed in the long term? We are working with a network for the implementation of the idea of a crop plant pro mille fund.
- In Demeter vegetable growing, hybrid varieties are frowned on in theory but in practice are widespread: how can we resolve this contradiction? A core group has started work on this.
- Continuing professional development for breeders: the third professional development week for those working in biodynamic breeding initiatives took place in January 2019. The Section is a partner in this initiative which is organised by the Fund for Crop Plant Development.
