Organic Seed Survey Seeks Input from Certified Organic Crop Producers


OFRF invites your participation in a national seed survey conducted by our friends at the Organic Seed Alliance, an organization we are proud to support in numerous endeavors, including the recently published set of four manuals to help farmers breed the seed they need, as well as the Organic Participatory Plant Breeding Toolkit. This national survey is only conducted every five years to monitor organic seed availability and use, challenges in sourcing organic seed, organic plant breeding needs, and other topics that inform the organic community’s understanding of the barriers and opportunities in improving organic seed systems in the U.S. The purpose is to assess certified organic crop producers’ attitudes and perceptions regarding organic seed, and to better understand current organic seed usage. Even if you currently do not use organic seed, we encourage you to respond to this survey.
Responses will be held confidential, and will be compiled and analyzed as a group, and will not be identified by individual or farm. Responses will be held confidential by Organic Seed Alliance.  
You can access the survey here.
The deadline to respond is October 3, 2014. 
Thank you for taking 20 minutes to respond to this vital national assessment.
