The Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA) is a national non-profit organization committed to protecting, promoting, and developing the organic seed trade and it’s growers, thereby assuring that the organic community has access to excellent quality organic seed, free of contaminants and adapted to the diverse needs of organic agriculture. As a diverse membership organization, OSGATA is uniquely positioned to address serious threats facing organic seed.
We envision a thriving organic seed industry with regionally-adapted, diverse organic seed that can support naturally integrated organic farms. Organic seeds are robust, require low chemical inputs and are nutritionally superior. As the trade association representing the organic seed community, we have established that transgenic contamination of organic seed constitutes irreparable harm to the organic seed industry and undermines the integrity of organic seed. Any detectable level is unacceptable.
