Boosting farm sustainability - ASTA's seed resource map online

USAgNet - 04/03/2024

The American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) has launched an interactive resource guide aiding farmers in accessing professional seed suppliers. This guide assists in selecting quality seeds for environment, conservation, and cover crops, supporting agricultural sustainability.

President and CEO of ASTA, Andy LaVigne emphasizes the importance of proactive planning in seed selection. Professional seed ensures optimal performance, purity, and minimal weed presence, contributing to farmers' success and sustainability efforts.

The guide is updated annually with input from ASTA members, providing the latest information on locally sourced seeds. Survey results indicate an anticipated increase in cover crop planting, driven by USDA initiatives. This highlights the guide's value in supporting sustainability advocacy and meeting growing demand for conservation resources.
