Concerning quarantine plans to have seed fungicide treated.

You may wish to sign and forward this statement-
 

We would prefer a world where we could touch the soil and plant seed with our children without gloves to protect us from chemicals.

We would like to see the evidence that treating seed will stop fungi spreading and affecting plants. Are there other more major ways fungi are spread?

Can seed production be declared from a disease free area?

For the organic industry and home gardeners fungicide treatment of seed will put an end to efforts to grow naturally and without chemicals.
