Apply for exemption for the use of non-organic seed/non-organic seed potatoes.

Service Description

In the case of proven unavailability of organic seed or organic seed potatoes, the authority (TLLLR) may grant permission to use conventional seed for research purposes, small field trials or variety maintenance or product innovation. The prerequisite for this is that no organic seed is available. It must be proven by your farm via the database that no organic seed is available. Applications must be submitted via the private organic inspection body responsible for your farm. Your inspection body will check the plausibility of the application and forward it to the authority. The processing time is 2-4 weeks. Applications must be submitted before sowing.
