Getting Ready for your spring planting? Territorial Seed Question
The rumor of Territorial and other seed companies' buyout by a major chemical/ag company is addressed in the Jan. 09 PCC (Puget Consumer Co-op) newsletter ("Correction to 'Who owns the seed supply?'") The rumored seed companies - including Territorial - have not been purchased. But seed wholesaler Seminis was bought by the GMO giant.
And, Seminis is a source of seeds to many companies named in the PCC report.

If you have concerns, look at
The Fedco Co Op Seed Co does not carry any Seminis products.
