Since the start of the farm there were no hybrids or gmo-seeds used in the farm. The Palmarosa seeds used today were originally bought from organic farms 12 years ago. Today the seeds are being self-propagated on Karmuhil Organic Farms or bought from farmers of the Karmuhil Producer Company Limited (KPCL) (Please see Appendix for information on KCP & Appendix for requirements and monitoring or seed stock purchased from KPC. If we are unable to obtain seeds from these two sources then we will search for organic seed suppliers.

The seeds used are ideally biodynamic, if this is not possible then seeds of organic origin are acquired. The seed varieties are selected for their strength and compatible to the bio region of Karmuhil Organic Farms.
