The Organic Seed Search training resource is part of the National Organic Program’s (NOP) Organic Integrity learning Center. Organic Seed Alliance developed this course in partnership with the Accredited Certifiers Association to support organic certifiers, organic inspectors, and organic operations in better understanding the organic seed requirement and the benefits of sourcing organic seed, how to document organic seed searches, and best practices for enforcing the requirement.
What will participants learn from this course?
The uneven supply of organic seed presents challenges to certifiers and inspectors in verifying compliance with the seed requirement. This course provides best practices for addressing some of the most common challenges that certifiers and inspectors face when reviewing seed searches. The course also explains how to document organic seed searches and provides operations with resources for sourcing more organic seed and conducting variety trials.
