Crop diversity...

… has developed over generations. People have cultivated and farmed plants for thousands of years, resulting in an incredible diversity of locally used and adapted crops. There was – and, in many places, still is – a close relationship between people and their plants.

… is severely threatened. 75% of all crop variety has become extinct since 1900. One of the main reasons is the industrialisation of agriculture. Commercial farming uses few species and varieties. Only about 100 crop species (of more than 4,800 known species) make up 90% of globally harvested food. Laws, corporate interests, consumer behaviour, environmental disasters, armed conflicts, the disappearance of small-scale farming, among other factors compound the danger to seed diversity on a global level.

… means life: crop diversity is part of the basis of our diet, of our life – just like air or water. It ensures that agriculture can adapt to changing environmental conditions (keyword: climate change) and new diseases or pests. It also ensures that suitable crops are also available for remote regions and extreme conditions – wherever people live who have to feed themselves.

Runabergs froer

Sweden/ Spekeröd

Ecological seed growing has a firm official hold in Europe now and several ecologically grown seeds are introduced on the market every year. In EU 2004 was the turning point when all ecological growing of vegetables must be carried out with ecologically grown seeds to be approved. There will be extensive control of the seed trade and seed cultivation by both state- and certified control agencies. The ecological cultivation which was founded on ideological convictions and trust is being replaced by an economically ruled control apparatus, wholly along the lines of the times, where suspicion is the evident reason for increased control. It is still a positive development even though economical self-interest lies behind the sudden interest in ecological seed growing by the seed giants. The great gain, globally, is that the seeds will be grown without artificial fertilizers and chemical growth preparations and pesticides, which were used diligently without limits in seed growing before. We ecological growers will also be able to obtain seeds without having to support chemical growing. The number of sorts is, however, still limited and the emphasis is on central European sorts. Here in the North it will often be difficult to find suitable sorts and many ecological growers will face difficult choices.
