Seeds for the future of organic farming

Our varieties

Every year, we test thousands of cereals for their cultivation and baking qualities under organic conditions. We have gathered exotic varieties from all over the world, but we make most of our varieties ourselves by cross-breeding them with each other. Among our varieties, there are a selected few that we have a particular fondness for. We are currently in the middle of propagating these, so others can enjoy their unique qualities.

Plant breeding and genetic resources

Organic plant breeding and so-called in situ-preservation of plant genetic ressources is the focal point for Agrologica's work. In our research, we identify problems and methods and attempt to solve them with the aid of plant breeding. We discover and develop new varieties with improved qualities with regards to baking, health and cultivation.

Research and development

Gluten allergi, baking quality, fungi and root-damaging nematodes are a few examples of the challenges facing the development of tasty and healthy varieties for organic farming. Here at Agrologica, we actively participate in various research and development projects where we tackle the fine details of these problems often by collaborating with other research institutions.

Education and counseling

As one of Denmark's most venerable organic farms backed by decades of organic research, Agrologica has a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer. We're happy to contribute with lectures, baking courses, open field days or consultancies regarding subjects like gluten allergi, plant diseases, plant genetic ressources or our other fields of expertise.

The organic farm

We began the conversion to organic farming on Møn in 1984. In 2002 we moved to our current location at the outskirts of Mariager. The farm consists of 9 ha of farmland, 2-3 ha of which are used for experiments, while the rest is used for propagating of cereals or green manure. We have chickens and ducks as permanent livestock, though we also use sheep or cows occasionally to graze our fields as a part of the organic crop rotation.

  • Seed spring 2021

    Most seed for the 2021 season is already reserved by partners, but not all seed from Agrolgica is not solve the the first who orders. Some seed are kept for other farmers and millers. If you therefore are interested in seed from Agrologica, please go through the varieties and ask for seed. I particularly recommend the new Mariagertoba wheat with properties similar to Canadian hard red sspring wheat.

  • Seed autumn 2020

    Høsten er gået i gang, og det tegner godt. Vil du prøve nogle af Agrologicas kornsorter kan vi anbefale at bestille i god tid. Der er allerede udsolgt af flere kornsorter. Vi anbefaler: Vinter-PopKorn er Agrologicas standard vinterhvede. Det er en blanding af mange forskellige vinterhvede-linier, som tilsammen giver en god bagekvalitet og resistens imod diverse sygdomme. Vår-PopKorn er en vårhvede, der ligesom Vinter-PopKorn en en blanding af mange linier med vårhvede-egenskaber, men den har gode vekselhvede-egenskaber, så den kan godt sås om efteråret. Hvid hvede er en sortsblanding af 4 vinterhvede linier, som giver meget lyst mel. Velegnet bl.a. til fuldkornsmel og til stenformalet mel, som ønskes en særligt lys udgave og med en mild smag, eksempelvis til kagemel. TomTat-10 og SkaLa-5 er to vinterhvedesorter, som har virkelig god bagekvalitet, med højt gluten-indhold og højt gluten-indeks. Purpur-hvede med store kerner og god bagekvalitet.
