Organic Research Centre avvia la sperimantazione di commercializzazione di popolazioni di frumento

Launch of ORC Wakelyns Population at National Organic Combinable Crops (NOCC15)

The Organic Research Centre has pioneered an evolutionary breeding programme to produce a hugely diverse population of wheat suited to organic and low-input farming systems. This year, for the first time, ORC is marketing it as ORC Wakelyns Population.

Populations are genetically diverse. All plants are genetically distinct while all of those in standard pureline varieties are almost identical. This means that populations are better able to adapt to unpredictable environments, including weather and pest/disease pressures.
