Organic Seed Survey: Register Your Opinion

Adapted from Press Release by the Organic Seed Alliance

CCOF invites you to participate in the Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) national seed survey.

The survey is designed to assess certified organic crop producers’ perceptions regarding organic seed and to better understand current organic seed usage.

This national survey is conducted every five years and is used as the basis of the State of Organic Seed Report, which monitors organic seed availability and use, challenges in sourcing organic seed, and organic plant breeding needs. The survey data may also help shape organic seed and breeding policies.

OSA estimates that the survey may be completed in 20 minutes, and encourages producers (even those not currently using organic seed) to respond by October 3, 2014.

Your responses are voluntary and will be held confidential by Organic Seed Alliance. Your certifier will not be able to see your responses. All responses will be compiled and analyzed as a group, and not be identifiable by individual or farm.

Again, you may access the survey here, and responses will be accepted through October 3, 2014. Please direct questions to Jared Zystro at OSA.
