The "EkoSeedForum - European conference on organic seed, organic plant breeding and agrobiodiversity" in Poznan has been concluded with encouraging results. With around 150 participants from 19 countries the interest in this conference exceeded the organizer’s expectations. "The conference aims to support the development of an independent organic plant breeding and seed production sector in Central and Eastern Europe, and we are glad that our university was chosen as venue," said the vice chancellor of the University of Poznan, Grzegorz Skrzypczak, in his opening speech.
Bernhard Jansen, managing director of the main organizer EkoConnect - International Centre for Organic Agriculture of Central and Eastern Europe e.V., stressed that it was about far more than just the supply of seeds for organic farming: "Seed breeding is about nothing less than our future. Because we are to some part what we eat, and we eat what we sow". Seed diversity must therefore remain a common property and should not be subjected to the economic interests of a few corporations.
