ECHO seed banks provide small sample packets of seed to those working on behalf of the poor in developing countries. Trial seeds can be used to evaluate new species that may help to diversify food crop options, improve soil fertility, provide useful farm product, and generate income for small scale farmers. The trial packets have about enough seed to plant a single 30 foot row.

Active development workers who are members of ECHOcommunity may request up to 10 seed packets per year at no charge. Qualified individuals can register for a no-cost membership. If you do not qualify as an "Active Development Worker" seed services may requested for consideration.
