Innovative Organic Fruit Breeding and uses

Descripción del proyecto

Sembrar las semillas de la agricultura ecológica del futuro

La vulnerabilidad de la producción de frutas ecológicas junto con la creciente demanda del mercado impone una búsqueda continua de medidas para garantizar su calidad y sostenibilidad. El equipo del proyecto InnOBreed, financiado con fondos europeos, fomentará y agregará tecnologías innovadoras centradas en el desarrollo participativo de las variedades de frutas dedicadas al sistema de agricultura ecológica. El proyecto es una iniciativa conjunta de veintiún organizaciones de diez países, entre las que se encuentran universidades, centros tecnológicos y asociaciones de productores. En el proyecto se hace hincapié en las innovaciones sociales, los ideotipos y métodos nuevos a fin de cribar las variedades cultivadas y los genitores resilientes con bases genéticas más grandes con el objetivo de favorecer la mejora de las frutas ecológicas y su aplicación para el progreso de toda la cadena de frutas ecológicas.

Objetivo

The Organic fruit sector is highly dependent on inputs, particularly in terms of plant protection. Climate change is increasing impacts and risks to organic fruit production. Large market demand is expanding for organic fruits but the current commercial cultivars (cvs) range previously selected in high input paradigm are, for most of them, not adapted to organic production. InnOBreed proposes to mobilise Innovative Solutions (ISs): social innovations, new ideotypes, new methods for screening robust cvs and genitors with larger genetic bases for fostering organic fruit breeding. These ISs will be targeted and developed on participative, multi-actor and multi-trait based approaches and then applied for evaluating underutilized Fruit Tree Genetic Resources (FTGR), pre-breeding and advanced material. InnOBreed’s scope encompasses many Rosaceous species but also citrus and grape. InnOBreed aims to improve the whole Fruit chain through the implementation of an Organic Variety Testing Network of actors. It deals with (i)identification and definition of current lock-in in organic fruit farming systems (OFS),(ii) co-designing new ideotypes fitting with local OFS,(iii)identification of performant IS already available, (iv)development of new climate change ISs but also for fruit quality, pests and diseases tolerance, low input fitness and robustness, and their application by FTGR curators,(v) IS’s validation process and implementation by several public-private case-studies in different regions for evaluating their efficiency , and (vi)checking sustainability and consistency with actual regulations before being disseminated for maximizing IS impacts on the value chain.InnOBreed is deeply connected with running initiatives, programmes and resources involved in OFS, organic fruit participative and classical breeding, fostering FTGR uses by fruit-chain, scientists and stakeholders. Particular attention will be paid to embed the relevant stakeholders at national and European levels.
