Title in English: Farm Seed Opportunities: Conservation, breeding and production
Abstract / summary in English:
Farm Seed Opportunities (FSO), a re- search project in the FP6 European Research Framework (2007-2009), was targeted to support the imple- mentation of seed regulations on con- servation varieties (directive 98/95/EC and new directives 2008/62/EC and 2009/145/CE) and to propose com- plementary seed regulation scenarios taking into account the diversity of the European seed systems. The FSO project is a collaborative effort of farmers and scientists from France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
This publication highlights the main FSO conclusions and presents FSO policy recommendations.
