Why Direct Seed
The agronomic, economic, and environmental benefits of direct seeding help to improve the sustainability of farming in the region. Sustainable agriculture supports rural economies, the environment, and the overall Quality of Life in the Pacific Northwest.
Assist in Salmon Recovery
The PNDSA recognizes the importance of several salmon species in the tri-state region and believes agriculture can play a key role in the process of recovery. Conservation farming practices including direct seeding can help bring endangered salmon species back to our rivers. The importance of water quality in promoting better spawning conditions is critical to that recovery. Direct seeding contributes directly to salmon recovery through the reduction of erosion and improvement of spawning habitat. We support the formation of collaborative partner arrangements with entities interested in environmental improvement that will directly enhance salmon recovery through improved production practices. Environmentally, direct seeding is the best choice for farming in most regions.
