Why Buy American Grown Niger Seed?
1. American Grown Seed is Alive and Fresh
All imported niger seed has been ordered sterilized by the USDA to prevent importation of noxious weed seed with the niger.
2. Buying American Grown Niger Helps Strengthen the U.S. Dollar
Like many other imported products, imported niger contributes to our trade imbalance. Buying American Niger will create jobs and help American farmers. This crop does not receive any government subsidies, and none of your tax dollars go to support this crop.

4. No Noxious Weeds, No Storage Insecticides
When you buy American Niger seed there is no chance you will be importing dangerous exotic weeds into North America. Also, imported niger seed is sometimes dusted with insecticide prior to storage (Weiss): http://www.fao.org/docrep/X5043E/x5043E0a.htm
5. No Support for Oppressive Governments
By purchasing American Niger, you will not be providing Burma's brutal ruling junta with vital cash that helps to enforce its control. In recent years Burma has emerged as one of the three top exporters of niger seed to the United States: http://www.earthrights.org
