I’m excited to share that State of Organic Seed, 2016 is now available! This report is part of our ongoing project to monitor the status of organic seed in the US and execute recommendations that increase the diversity, quality, and integrity of organic seed available.
Our newest findings allow us to compare data and identify improvements and ongoing needs since our first report in 2011. The recommendations provide a roadmap for building organic seed systems that — beyond delivering more organic seed to farmers — can help address some of our biggest challenges in agriculture: changing climates, market consolidation, and pesticides in our food and environment, to name a few.
Please read and share the report, and then get involved. Here are a few things you can do right now to help us grow a healthier future beginning with organic seed.
