Gbilugu Ecological Farm

PO Box 43
Walewale NR

Ghanaian journalist, Hannah Zemp-Tapang, was asked to document experiences in ecological farming in Northern Ghana. Here she presents some of her findings. According to Naa Yiryel, after a long period of using chemical fertiliser on their farms, they found that it did not give lasting fertility to the soil. When the government lifted the subsidy on fertiliser and other agricultural inputs, many farmers could no longer afford chemical fertiliser. For the first few years, they thought that the remains of the chemical fertiliser used during the previous years would help. But to their surprise, production was far lower than it had been in the years before chemical fertiliser was introduced. Read More

UN figures show that global food supplies are more than adequate, producing 1.5 times the amount required to feed the world. But desertification and soil erosion are rapidly decreasing the available arable land. Alternative food production systems need greater credence: Cuba now produces more food than before with greatly reduced chemical inputs. Permaculture cultivation produces more energy than it consumes, and is operational in many countries. Domestication of edible wild perennials can increase per-acre yields and may herald a new agricultural revolution.

My name is Romain Abilé HOUEHOU, I come from Benin (West Africa). I am the President of the League for the Defence of the Consumer in Benin (LDCB). The LDCB is a consumer association working on protecting the interests and defending the rights of the consumer in Benin. In this context, the issue of Food Security is highly considered. The problem of GMO has been a subject for some campaigns carried out by my organisation and is still being discussed in my country; advocacy for food affordability, good consumer environment and food sustainability is part of our activities. Regarding all this, the question of diversity is fully highlighted. Presently, the question of food affordability is the big challenge because of the food high price in Benin and surrounding countries due to international speculation and the misuse of agriculture for agro-fuel. The fundamental concern that stands about this problem is the strategy a consumer association can use to tackle the situation and influence the government decision making process. Another challenge is the question of GMO that remains very controversial in my country with regard to the impact on the environment and the right of poor farmers. For the time being, a new moratorium has been enacted for 5 years by the government to prohibit the import and commercialisation of any GMO products on Benin territory. Participating to Planet Diversity would be an important occasion to share experiences on what had been done in my country, make some proposals to some fellow participants. But, in return, I can acquire new tools and new strategies in tackling and participating to government decision making process in Benin as far as food high price is concerned and new analysis about GMO.

Heritage Wheat Conservancy

growseed@yahoo.com
www.growseed.org

Restoring the arts of on-farm conservation and crop improvement. The southern Fertile Crescent is the ancient center of origin for wild wheat, the mother of all cultivated wheats. Wild wheat still grows in undisturbed meadows and field edges. Indigenous Fertile Crescent wheats have been selected by generations of traditional farmers have richer flavor and complex disease resistances than the modern wheat bred for yield and uniformity. However today about 90% of the wheat eaten in Israel, Palestine and Jordan is imported from the US. Mideast traditional wild foods, vegetables and wheats, many of which date back to Biblical times, are in critical danger. In a creative response, regional seed curators, artisan bakers and farmers are pooling our resources together to restore our ancient wheats for the common good.

Connaissons-nous rééllement ce qui se retrouve dans notre assiette et le cycle de vie complet de tous les produits qu'elle contient? Pourtant, le droit à l'information alimentaire est un droit reconnu par les Nations Unies. Au Canada, l'étiquetage des OGM est cependant volontaire. Mais dans certains pays, elle est obligatoire. Nos gouvernements peuvent donc montrer la voie, faire preuve de leadership et légiférer pour l'étiquetage obligatoire des OGM.

Putting the matter plainly: when foreign genes are introduced into an organism, creating a transgenic organism (commonly called a genetically modified or genetically engineered organism), the results for the organism and its environment are almost always unpredictable. The intended result may or may not be achieved in any given case, but the one almost sure thing is that unintended results - nontarget effects - will also be achieved.

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS) has been conserving an irreplaceable part of our natural heritage: those vanishing varieties of rice that indigenousl farmers created by selective breeding over generations, to ensure the country s food security over centuries. These folk varieties require none of the synthetic agrochemical inputs, and nothing by way of augmented water supply. India had some 65,000 distinct varieties of rice until the advent of the Green Revolution. In West Bengal, over 5500 rice varieties were grown until 1970, but today only about 550 are surviving on farmers fields. Working against the Green Revolution s push towards homogenisation of crop genetic diversity. CIS is growing 542 folk rice varieties on its ecological farm Basudha (Bengali name of Earth Mother).

Erhaltung der Nutzpflanzenvielfalt Eine große Vielfalt von Nutzpflanzen zu erhalten ist dem Dreschflegel e.V. schon seit langem ein besonderes Anliegen. Vor Jahren erkannten wir, daß diese Arbeit erst dann wirklich fruchten kann, wenn biologisch gezüchtetes Saatgut auch zu vielen Menschen in viele Gärten gelangt. Durch den Verkauf des Saatgutes kann die Vermehrungsarbeit jedoch nicht finanziert werden. Weitergehende Aufgaben haben wir in den vergangenen Jahren, soweit es in unseren Kräften stand, neben der Vermehrungsarbeit unterstützt: * intensive züchterische Arbeit an vernachlässigten alten Sorten oder ungewöhnlichen neuen Formen, die Gärtnerinnen und Gärtnern sonst vorenthalten bleiben * die politische Arbeit, mit der wir bestrebt sind, die Entwicklung gesetzlicher Regelungen und gesellschaftlicher Strukturen, die die Sortenverarmung wesentlich verursacht haben, in unserem Sinne umzugestalten. Dabei hat sich mehr und mehr gezeigt, daß diese Arbeiten im Rahmen der betrieblichen Vermehrungstätigkeit nicht zu leisten sind und in einen anderen Rahmen gestellt werden müssen, wenn sich hier in Zukunft mehr bewegen kann.

Tomaten im Freiland Tomaten sind seit dem Beginn ihrer Verbreitung in Deutschland am Anfang des letzten Jahrhunderts zu einem der wichtigsten Gemüse geworden. Pro Jahr und Person werden über 14 kg Tomaten verzehrt, Tendenz steigend. Im Inland werden im Erwerbsanbau nicht einmal 10% des Bedarfs erzeugt. Tomaten sind eines der wichtigsten Produkte des ökologischen Gemüsebaues. Sie werden in (fast) jeder Gärtnerei ? zunehmend als Qualitätstomaten - angebaut. Viele Gärtnereien vermarkten in den Monaten April und Mai auch Jungpflanzen. Etwa 14 Millionen Deutsche nennen den Garten als Hobby und jeder zweite Haushalt verfügt über einen Garten. Es werden in Deutschland jährlich etwa 40 Mio. Tomatenpflanzen angebaut; dabei wird der Gesamtertrag aus dem erwerbsmäßigen Anbau durch die Produktion in privaten Gärten mindestens erreicht, wenn nicht überschritten. Begrenzender Faktor im Freilandanbau von Tomaten in Deutschland ist die Kraut- und Braunfäule geworden, die durch den Pilz Phytophthora infestans verursacht wird. Im ökologischen Betrieb findet deshalb praktisch kein Freilandanbau mehr statt und selbst unter Glas und Folie muss mitunter eine empfindliche Ertragseinbuße hingenommen werden. Teilprojekte waren 1. Die Bereitstellung von Saatgut eines mehrjährig regional geprüften Sortiments von modernen und alten Sorten mit Eignung für (i) die Erzeugung von Tomaten im ökologischen Freilandanbau und (ii) die gewerbliche Anzucht von Jungpflanzen. 2. Die Erarbeitung der methodischen Grundlagen für die regionale ökologische Züchtung von Freilandtomaten durch (i) Untersuchungen zur regionalen Differenzierung in der Anbaueignung; (ii) Phytomedizinische Analyse; (iii) Prüfung von Ausleseverfahren für die Feldresistenz gegen Phytophthora; (iv) Bestimmung der Erblichkeit und Entwicklung von Erfassungsmethoden für die Zuchtziele; (v) Bewertung der Zuchtziele aus der Sicht von ErzeugerInnen und VerbraucherInnen. 3. Die Bereitstellung eines genetisch breiten Pre-Breeding-Materials für ein langfristiges Züchtungsprogramm zur Entwicklung Phytophthora-toleranter Freilandtomaten für den ökologischen Anbau.

Projektgruppe: Pharming. Gentechnisch veränderte Pflanzen und Tiere als Arzneimittel-Produktionsstätten der Zukunft? Pharming ist eine neue Anwendung der Biotechnologie, bei der transgene Pflanzen und Tiere als lebende "Fabriken" zur Produktion von Biopharmazeutika genutzt werden. Biopharmazeutika sind komplexe pharmazeutische Verbindungen, die nicht mit Hilfe konventioneller chemischer Synthese hergestellt werden können, sondern aus biologischem Material isoliert (z. B. aus Blutplasma) oder gentechnisch mit Hilfe von lebenden Zellen produziert werden. Die derzeit häufig angewandte Methode, Biopharmazeutika in transgenen Mikroorganismen herzustellen, ist teuer und ineffektiv. Zudem hat die immer größere Nachfrage nach Biopharmazeutika bereits zu Produktionsengpässen und ersten Fällen von Patientenwartelisten geführt. Bei der Herstellung von Biopharmazeutika in höheren Organismen soll die Erweiterung der Produktionskapazitäten schneller, billiger und vor allem flexibler möglich sein, da die Vergrößerung von Tier-Herden und Anbauflächen kaum technischen Mehraufwand mit sich bringt. Zudem könnten durch Pharming neue Therapeutika entwickelt und vermarktet werden, deren Produktionskosten momentan noch zu hoch sind. Die mit dem Pharming verbundenen Erwartungen sind hoch ? sowohl in Bezug auf den medizinischen Nutzen als auch in Bezug auf den wirtschaftlichen Profit. Allerdings wirft Pharming auch eine Reihe von ethischen, rechtlichen, ökologischen und sozialen Fragen auf, die parallel zur technischen Fortentwicklung dieser Technik diskutiert werden sollten, um einen eventuell bestehenden politischen Handlungsbedarf möglichst frühzeitig zu bestimmen.

Technologische Entwicklungen haben einen ganz wesentlichen Einfluss darauf, wie sich Gebiete mit natürlichen und strukturellen Nachteilen im Verhältnis zu Gunstlagen entwickeln. Ein Schwerpunkt dieses Forschungsfeldes besteht in der Analyse und Bewertung der Auswirkungen von Gen- und Biotechnologie in Bezug auf ihre ökologischen, ökonomischen und sozialen Dimensionen sowie das Aufzeigen, Entwerfen und Entwickeln von alternativen Handlungs- und Gestaltungsoptionen primär mit Blickrichtung Berggebiete (z.B. gentechnikfreie Gebiete). Im zweiten Schwerpunkt wird von der These ausgegangen, dass fast alle wirtschaftlichen, insbesondere aber landwirtschaftlichen Aktivitäten direkte und indirekte Wirkungen auf die biologische Vielfalt entfalten. Vor allem im ökologisch sensiblen Berggebiet gilt es, aufbauend auf Erfahrungen aus der Vergangenheit, die gegenwärtigen Auswirkungen neuer Aktivitäten auf die Biodiversität abzuschätzen und neue Konzepte zu ihrem Schutz zu entwickeln. Dabei sind vor allem auch sozioökonomische Disziplinen gefordert. Im Rahmen dieses Forschungsfeldes stehen somit auch Fragen der Bewertung von Ökosystemfunktionen der Biodiversität, der Entwicklung von wirtschaftlichen Anreizmaßnahmen, sowie deren marktwirtschaftliche Einbettung zur Diskussion.

España es el principal productor de transgénicos en Europa. En 2006 se cultivaron 53667 hectáreas de maíz transgénico (único cultivo transgénico legal), según datos de la industria biotecnológica. Desde 1998 España ha venido cultivando OMG sin que se realice ningún tipo de seguimiento al respecto, sin que se sepa exactamente cuánto o dónde se cultivan y con una absoluta falta de transparencia. Desde Amigos de la Tierra llevamos años luchando para terminar con esta situación. En España no existe una legislación que proteja la agricultura convencional y ecológica de la contaminación por transgénicos. Desde el Ministerio de Agricultura y el de Medio Ambiente se han presentado varios borradores de Decreto sobre la llamada ?coexistencia? entre la agricultura transgénica y la convencional y ecológica. Todos los borradores presentados han sido claramente insuficientes. En repetidas ocasiones, una amplia coalición de organizaciones nos hemos dirigido al gobierno para expresar nuestra opinión sobre esta legislación , consiguiendo, a través de esta movilización social, paralizar una ley claramente perjudicial para el medio ambiente y la salud pública.

The underlying philosophy of GREEN Foundation(GF) has been to accept traditional knowledge with its technical, social, and spiritual dimensions to encourage endogenous development within the community. GREEN Foundation has now been working over a decade in close participation with the local community and individual farmers to Conserve Biodiversity and Improve Food Security. From a starting point which concentrated on the identification and conservation of traditional seed varieties of millets and paddy which were fast disappearing from the local farms, GF activities have progressed to reviving traditional storage and exchange of seeds through Community Seed Banks, to the revival of traditional agricultural methods reintroduced in conjunction with modern organic techniques. It has encouraged the creation of Kitchen Gardens, the one-acre integrated farming practice and Community Farming for landless and marginal farmers. It has also promoted Integrated Agroforestry and Livestock Management to meet the communities' needs for fodder and fuel and to Reduce Dependence on External Inputs. Conserving & Enhancing Natural Resources has clearly been an essential element of these programmes as has Training & Infrastructure Creation as active participation by the community is essential for sustainability. GREEN Foundation is now involved in encouraging Biodiversity Based Income Generation schemes and setting up Community Marketing arrangements for ecological agriculture products and craft products, grains and seed. Advocacy and Lobbying are also important activities. In developing linkages with various regional, national and international organisations to create awareness of the issues GF faces, GF has been able to make a significant contribution to the development of organic farming policy of the Government of Karnataka. Work on a Community Seed Bank Network has established strong regional links with other organisations engaged in natural resource management and to effect further change GF organises national level seminars, workshops, and conferences.

Πολλές ελληνικές εταιρείες ζωικών προϊόντων προμηθεύονται αποκλειστικά μη μεταλλαγμένες ζωοτροφές. Μεγάλες γαλακτοβιομηχανίες είναι πλέον σε θέση να πιστοποιήσουν ότι το σύνολο των ζωοτροφών που χρησιμοποιούν δεν περιέχει μεταλλαγμένα συστατικά. Αυτό μας δίνει τη δύναμη να συνεχίσουμε να αγωνιζόμαστε μέχρι να εξασφαλίσουμε οριστικά πως τα μεταλλαγμένα δεν θα καταλήξουν στο πιάτο μας.

GMOs should not be released into the environment as there is not adequate scientific understanding of their impact on the environment and human health. We advocate immediate interim measures such as labelling of GE ingredients, and the segregation of genetically engineered crops and seeds from conventional ones. We also oppose all patents on plants, animals and humans, as well as patents on their genes. Life is not an industrial commodity. When we force life forms and our world's food supply to conform to human economic models rather than their natural ones, we do so at our own peril.

Not so long ago, Dahod situated in Western India was covered with thick dense forests ? a home for wild tigers and elephants. The tribals of the region earned their livelihood from the forests. For the last fifty years there has been immense natural resource destruction and inappropriate management leading to loss of biological diversity. The organization Sadguru Water Development Foundation, an NGO, established in 1974, dedicated itself to the betterment of rural and tribal people by helping them make better use of available resources, appropriate technology and participatory managerial practices. The aim is to help the tribal people break away from the vicious circle of poverty and once again restore the lost natural resources. By making best use of available water resources and demonstrating the economic and environmental benefits of afforestations and watershed development, Sadguru Water Development Foundation has reversed the exodus of tribal people forced out from their land by drought and erosion. This is bringing in new prosperity and a potential impetus for environmental improvement. It has transformed large semi-aird area into lush green fields where once again interdependence between humans and nature flourish.
