We are excited to announce the distribution of our 2014 organic producer seed survey. This national survey is conducted every five years to monitor organic seed availability and use, challenges in sourcing organic seed, and organic plant breeding needs, among other important topics. The data collected will inform the organic community’s understanding of the barriers and opportunities in building the availability, quality, and integrity of organic seed.
Findings from this survey will be included in an updated version of our State of Organic Seed report (first published in 2011). The report will be made public with detailed recommendations for improving access to seed that is optimal for U.S. organic agriculture.
If you are a certified organic crop producer, please take the survey. Your participation is essential to this national assessment. Even if you do not currently use organic seed, we encourage you to take the survey.
