About Us

Quality seeds are the foundation of human and animal life on earth. "First The Seed" expresses the basic premise that underlies our community: there is no substitute for quality seed — a fact of life dating back to the dawn of civilization, when the first post-nomadic people knew it as the difference between thriving and surviving.  Quality seed is essential for the growth and development of quality crops and an abundant, nutritious food supply.

The Texas Seed Trade Association represents and safeguards the interests of all seed producers in Texas.  Our members chartered this organization to maintain the high standard of our common code of ethics, to advocate for a just and equitable regulatory environment, to ensure fair trade practices both domestic and internationally, and to continue the Texas commitment to produce high quality seeds, recognized the world over for excellence.
