MCIA's annual Directory (formerly known as the Seed Directory) is published every September.  The Directory contains listings of seed, products, and services, as well as information regarding MCIA's programs and producer contacts. A directory of MCIA members was first published in 1906 and a list of those with inspected and approved seed began in 1912.
