Buying organic seed is important because it guarantees that your seeds not only will be untreated with fungicides, but it also means that you are supporting and encouraging seed farmers to stop using toxic chemicals. Certified organic seeds are harvested from certified organic crops. They may be a hybrid or heirloom variety. In order to qualify for the USDA Organic certification, farmers must seek out organic seed. If they cannot find organic seed, they are allowed to use conventional, untreated seed.
