seed data bank

The "OrganicXseeds" database is now also online for Denmark

In order to make the availability of organic seeds more transparent, the implementation of an electronic database is mandatory for all EU Member States pursuant to Regulations (EC) 834/2007 and 889/2008, but it will also be with the new Regulation (EU) 2018/848 which will be applied starting from January 2021.


A survey on organic seed databases in the EU

A fundamental principle in organic farming is the use of seeds that are produced under organic conditions. Each EU member state maintains an online database in order to facilitate the acquisition of such seeds (art. 48 Commission Regulation 889/2008). The Polytechnic University of Marche (Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy) invites users of the databases to partake in a survey which has been prepared for a general evaluation of the organic seed database in each country.
