Title in English: Breeding pure line varieties of spring wheat for organic agriculture in the Netherlands
Abstract / summary in English:
The availability of spring wheat varieties for organic farming is very limited. Efforts have been made to find ways to obtain more suitable varieties and make their future availability more reliable. A consortium of farmers, bakers and a trader has been set up to stimulate this development, in cooperation with breeders. A number of key elements have been identified to make such an approach feasible.
