    Denmark has done considerable efforts to meet the demands from the EU when it comes to using organic seed in organic agriculture. The Danish seed companies have also been involved in the practical production, yet, the demand was not quite as expected. Possibly because the cultivars produced was not in demand by the vegetable growers or because to large quantities was produced. Therefore the Danish production, at present, is limited. Questions to be put forward in the supply chains might therefore involve: what cultivars do the producers want and in which quantities? At the same time efforts should tackle how to make the seed production feasible in order to make seed companies interested in the organic seed production. It is important to focus on organic seed to secure one of the organic Principles - self-reliance, and at the same time close the organic circle from start (seed) to end (product)
