The Market for Organic & Ecological Seed in Canada
In 2014, the Canada Organic Trade Association released the first comprehensive study on the organic and ecological seed market in Canada, conducted in partnership with the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, a project of USC Canada. The study values the organic and ecological seed in Canada at over $78 million per year, including $28 million in vegetable seed and $20 million in purchased field crop seed. The research also reaffirms the value and importance of saved seed for organic farms, at over $30 million per year, and recommends public policy to support the continued growth of the organic sector, including the practice of seed-saving.
