The Organic Seed Alliance has launched its national organic seed survey. The survey comes around every five years, and seeks to assess certified crop producers’ attitudes and perceptions regarding organic seed, as well as better understand current organic seed usage.
Certified organic crop producers, whether or not they currently use organic seeds, are encouraged to take a few minutes to complete the survey. All responses are voluntary and confidential, and will be processed in aggregate; no data will be identified by individual or farm.
The data collected through this survey will be analyzed and compiled as part of the next State of Organic Seed report, which will be published in 2015. This report captures successes, obstacles, opportunities, and risks in organic seed systems, and will offer detailed recommendations for improving access to seed that is optimal for U.S. organic agriculture.
