New Survey to Assess State of Organic Seed



OSGATA member Organic Seed Alliance recently announced their 2014 survey to assess the challenges and opportunities facing organic seed. Conducted every five years as part of an ongoing “State of Organic Seed” project, this national survey  monitors organic seed availability and use, challenges in sourcing organic seed, and organic plant breeding needs.

OSA’s State of Organic Seed Report, first published in 2011, will be updated to include data collected in 2014. As in the past, this report will be available to the public and will include recommendations for improving access to organic seed.

The survey relies on input from certified organic crop producers to inform the organic community’s understanding of topics such as availability, quality, and integrity of organic seed.

All certified organic crop producers- even those not currently using organic seed- are invited to participate in taking the survey.
