IG Seeds - Interest group for GMO-free seed work

IG Saatgut - Interessengemeinschaft für gentechnikfreie Saatgutarbeit

In the IG seeds, plant breeders, seeds and maintenance initiatives have come together.

Since 2005, the interest group for genetic engineering-free seed work (IG Saatgut) has been committed to educational, public and networking work for political and legal framework conditions, which are intended to permanently ensure genetic engineering-free seed work. We would like to maintain and develop the genetic engineering variety of cultural plants -free variety of crops as the basis for self -determined production and use of seeds and food. In addition, we are committed to ensuring that the genetic engineering variety of cultural plants remains freely accessible for conservation and breeding work. Another focus of the IG Saatgut is therefore working on intellectual property rights in the seed area (patents, restrictive variety protection).

With our activities, we would like to contribute to the comprehensive structural change in agriculture towards an ecological, socially just agricultural system. The maintenance of genetic engineering -free seed work is central to this: only in this way can an independent, rural seed work and ecological plant breeding - two essential building blocks of conversion - be promoted.
