The Right Seed in the Right Place at the Right Time


North American native plant seed is a valuable commodity and one that is in short supply. Current production may not always meet the growing demand, which is primarily for restoration of degraded landscapes. In response to this shortage, a strong and diverse coalition of federal and other agencies, as well as nonprofit organizations and private sector busi­nesses, has developed the ambitious National Seed Strategy. The mission of the strategy is to ensure the avail­ability of genetically appropriate seed reserves to restore viable, productive plant communities and sustainable ecosystems.
