Certified organic growers are required to use certified organic seed if it’s available. Home gardeners don’t have to worry about these regulations, but choosing organic seeds ensures that the seeds have not been genetically engineered or treated with synthetic pesticides. Also, if you’re already using organic methods in your garden, you’ll likely get better results by starting with organic seeds. That’s because the odds are good that organic seeds are from plants adapted to organic fertilizers, rather than to synthetic chemical fertilizers.

Certified naturally grown looks more stringent than our own USDA's organic or.... am I missing something. Looks like there's no costly fees with the certified naturally grown too. Way cool articles 4B!!!

Good quesion Equilibrium. I'm not sure though. Perhaps someone can chime in and answer your question.

I just really like that I could look up an organic seed variety, and simply click on a link for a vendor who sells that organic seed.
