How to improve and reuse forgotten crops and cultivars

How to improve and reuse forgotten crops and cultivars.
From (gene bank) freezer to fork.

There is a vast, but non-utilised diversity kept in gene banks, while the available diversity of marketed seeds and crops has still not improved significantly. This is especially true when it comes to climate robust, drought tolerant cultivars in combination with a higher demand for locally sourced vegetarian diets.

In the frame of this workshop, we would like to share success stories and investigate how to adapt and upscale them in different regions. We will also discuss the main bottlenecks encountered along the way and how to overcome them by participatory and inclusive approaches.

Presentations:

1. Organic tomato landrace seedlings on the Hungarian market, results of on-farm research at ÖMKi, Orsolya Papp (ÖMKi)

2. Participatory breeding in Austria, Helene Maierhofer (Arche Noah)

3. COOP-eration for diverse seeds and crops, Béla Bartha (Pro Specie Rara) (TO BE CONFIRMED)

4. Underutilised Crop Cluster for growing, processing, and commercialising underutilised crops, Marta W. Vasconcelos (Universidade Católica Portuguesa – Porto)

 

Workshop questions:
  •  >>   How to navigate among gene bank accessions? Which accessions to try, means of selection, number of accessions selected for trial? Number of trial locations and years to achieve robust data. (facilitator Attila Králl)
  •  >>  How to organise and fund participatory selection and/or centralised breeding? Climate adaptation of species/cultivars in combination with selection based on quality traits (nutrient content, protein content/quality, etc) (facilitator Judit Fehér)
  • >>   What is the protocol of seed producers, seed companies to include a cultivar in their assortment? (Szentesi mag, Rédey, ZKI?) (facilitátor Orsolya Papp)
  • >>  What ways of upscaling do we foresee (in Europe)? (Facilitator Bálint Balázs)
