Breeding Organic from the beginning
Doing Things Right from the Start
Demeter works towards creating certified organic vegetable and grain varieties. This guarantees high food quality and a great taste. Already while selecting types, breeders regard vitality, flavor and digestibility. And because no farm and soil is the same, we breed crop varieties with local characteristics in mind.
The same applies to animal breeding: to consider adaption to organic husbandry conditions, e.g. animals can utilize organic feed well and are fit to live without impairments, keep their horns etc.
(Last but not least: breeding should not be in the hands of few global companies but farmers should be enabled to work with generative seeds and animals.)
