Abstract


Role of the Internet in the trade of gardening seeds, including the marketing activities of Polish seed companies and the on-line sale of seeds was determined on the base of conducted tests: analyses of websites and e-shops and concerning questionnaire forms (B2C) conducted in most important Polish seed companies. All Polish seed companies had attractive and correctly functioning websites which apart from primary data contained a lot of additional information. The majority of Polish seed enterprises owned the online shop.

The majority of polled respondents from Polish seed companies having the e-shops predicted the increase in the on-line trade and meanings of the Internet.
