What is the difference between certified organic and untreated seeds? To help you navigate the different labelling terminology, we have put together some definitions below.

There are 2 types of seed labels that you will see in the seed industry:

1. Certified Organic

Seeds which are listed as certified organic have been grown to comply with the Australian Certified Organic standard.

2. Untreated

Seeds listed as untreated mean that the seed has not been chemically treated with insecticides or fungicides. These seeds are often imported from overseas.
