The term Organic Seeds is often used synonymously to open pollinated, heirloom or generally to reproducible seeds as opposed to Hybrid or GMO seeds. Indeed, Organic Seeds are mostly open pollinated, reproducible seeds and sometimes even heirloom seeds. However, in some countries like in Germany, the term Organic Seeds specifically refers to seeds only that are bred at organic farms. Organic farms have subscribed to certain farming rules that are in harmony with nature, regulating among others, the kind of pesticides and fertilizers to be used. The idea of having organic farms breed and reproduce Organic Seeds is to have seeds that are especially adapted to organic farming techniques with their special requirements of disease resistance, nutrient availability and competitiveness to weeds. In the long run, organic farms might have sufficient supplies of Organic Seeds so that they would need to use those seeds only. Regarding health benefits, there is no difference between food that is produced from organic seeds compared to food produced from seeds of other seed producers.
