American Seed Trade Association (ASTA)


Founded in 1883, the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) is one of the oldest trade organizations in the United States. Its membership consists of about 850 companies involved in seed production and distribution, plant breeding, and related industries in North America. ASTA's mission is to be an effective voice of action in all matters concerning the development, marketing and free movement of seed, associated products and services throughout the world. ASTA, directed by its members, is involved in nearly all issues relating to plant germplasm, focusing on three areas of industry importance: regulatory and legislative matters at international, national and state levels; new technologies impacting all crop species; and communication and education of members and appropriate public audiences regarding science and policy issues affecting the seed industry. ASTA is driven by its membership, which is represented by a board of directors comprised of a 15-member executive committee. ASTA also has nine standing committees addressing key seed science, policy, and education issues. Learn more.
