We rarely think we live in a world of seeds. From morning toast and coffee to cotton, the clothes we wear are literally an integral part of our lives. At the same time, seeds are the basis of evolution, economy and culture. Despite their importance, we rarely talk about seeds. What is seed, what is responsible for seed production and old varieties? How are they different from new, genetically modified ones? What can we do for each of us on seed issues when biodiversity conservation becomes a matter of particular importance? Gražvydas Jegelevičius, the founder and head of the Institute of Natural Agriculture, talks about all this.
