Public opinion polls in the US and abroad reveal that the large majority of consumers are wary of genetically modified (GM)

crops and plants. As a result, agricultural producers and manufacturers have found that "GM-free" can be both a socially

responsible statement and an effective marketing slogan.


Created in 1999 by the Council for Responsible Genetics, the Safe Seed Pledge helps to connect non-GM seed sellers,

distributors and traders to the growing market of concerned gardeners and agricultural consumers. The Pledge allows

businesses and individuals to declare that they "do not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically engineered seeds," thus

assuring consumers of their commitment.


CRG formally recognizes commercial vendors through the Safe Seed Sourcebook available online. Sellers are

encouraged to advertise the Pledge to consumers through seed catalogs and package labels. So far, over 100

commercial seed sellers have joined this growing movement for agricultural sustainability.


If you are a seed vendor or trader and would like to sign the Safe Seed Pledge, please fill out a print copy of

the online form and send it by fax or mail to the address listed.
