The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is conducting an important assessment of the challenges faced by seed and plant suppliers in the United States. I am writing because it is my understanding that your organization is a supplier of native seed or plant materials. The assessment will benefit suppliers throughout the nation by identifying ways for improving connections between supply and demand for native seed and plant materials.
We would greatly appreciate your asking the person at [Business Name] who is most knowledgeable about your sales of native seed and plant materials to answer this brief online survey that is being sent to seed and plant suppliers throughout the United States. The survey asks about experiences your organization might have with the sale of native seed. We would also like to hear your ideas for improving future opportunities for native seed and plant suppliers.
The online survey is located here:

No individual or business will ever be identified in our results. For this study to be successful it is vitally important that we hear from as many suppliers as possible.
