Title in English: Breeding initiatives of seeds of landraces, amateur varieties and conservation varieties: An inventory and case studies

Abstract / summary in English:

One of the objectives of the Farm Seed Opportunities (FSO) project is to develop on farm breeding methodologies for the conservation and development of landraces, amateur and conservation varieties. The starting point for the development of these methodologies are the already existing experiences of farmers, small scale seed producers and researchers. To be able to draw on the expertise of these practitioners, we have selected five breeding initiatives for in depth case-studies. Prior to the selection of the five cases we carried out an inventory of all known initiatives within the European Economic Area. Results are presented in this report
