State of organic seeds 2016

Organic food should begin with organic seed. Right now most organic farmers rely on seed that isn’t organic. But that’s changing, for the good.

 

State of Organic Seed is a project of Organic Seed Alliance that monitors the status of organic seed in the US and provides a roadmap for increasing the diversity, quality, and integrity of organic seed available.

  

Organic farmers produce food differently, and that means they need different seed for the crops they grow: seed developed to thrive without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and adapted to their local climate and soil conditions.

Beyond meeting the seed needs of farmers, growing more organic seed has environmental and other benefits that will lead to a healthier people and planet.

State of Organic Seed, 2016 provides the first five-year update to our findings and recommendations. The analysis helps the organic community and seed industry identify gaps, barriers, and solutions to ensure that farmers have the organic seed they need to successfully fulfill the growing demand for organic food.

We’re excited about the roadmap before us and proud to be part of an organic seed community that is growing in diversity and scale every day.

Il ritorno del Riso in Sicilia

Ragione e sentimento possono arrivare dove l’agrofinanza neppure immagina: in Sicilia da circa 5 anni c’è chi ha pensato di reintrodurre la coltivazione del riso. Dopo alcuni tentativi, anche di successo, nell’entroterra ennese, il ritorno del riso in grande stile...
