    Posterpresentation: The EU-project "Seed Treatments for Organic Seed Production" (QLK5-2002-02239 STOVE) was initiated in March 2003. The project aim is to evaluate non-chemical methods for control of seed-borne pathogens in organic vegetable production. Both fysical and biological methods are being investigated. The former include hot air, hot water and electron treatment, while the latter compromise formulated commercialised microbial preparations, resistance inducers, non-commercialised antagonistic micro-organisms and plant extracts/compounds of natural origin.
