Title in English: Towards a more community oriented and chain-based breeding: Understanding underlying principles for successful new models
Abstract / summary in English:
New breeding approaches and organisational models are needed to stimulate breeding for organic agriculture. In order to achieve this, new concepts are needed. We propose a new analytical framework based on two axes: the level of diversity in breeding products and the level of access in the breeding model. This model combines ecological and socio-economic aspects of breeding. With this framework, it is possible to understand the success of particular initiatives, and to understand what technical breeding approaches can be combined with which organisational models Such framework will also help understand how to stimulate the development of more community oriented and chain based breeding models.
