How to Order Trial Seeds
Share |


The ECHO FL Seed Bank offers small sample packets of seeds to those working on behalf of the poor, particularly in developing countries. It is our hope that these seeds will be used to evaluate new species that may help alleviate hunger, improve the soil, and produce income in areas where agriculture is difficult.

Up to 10 packets of sample seeds are available free for active development workers in a calendar year.  To find out if you qualify, and receive your "promotional code" to use when submitting your order, please fill out this form. Please order all 10 sample packets at once to save on processing and shipping costs. If you order more than one of any variety we reserve the right to limit the order to one packet depending on our supply. Please be aware that response to your request for the promotional code may only be replied to during regular working hours (8a.m. - 5p.m, Monday through Friday EST).

: Please be aware that some countries require an Import Permit and/or a Phytosanitary Certificate in order to allow seeds into the country.  If you want your seeds sent to a country with these requirements, you are responsible for paying for these documents.  Most Western countries and many Central American countries have strict import laws.  If you are not sure about your country's laws, ask your Department of Agriculture.  We can obtain a Phytosanitary Certificate if you need one; it will cost you $61 US Dollars.  Please e-mail us if you are unsure of your country's import regulations.
