Please note that the Seed Laboratory has issued a new Fee Schedule, effective July 1. To view or download it, click here.

A few reminders as we begin a new testing season:

• The sample must be representative of your seed lot—the test results we obtain are a direct reflection of the sample that is provided.

• Storing a sample prior to submitting—keep samples in a closed container in a clean, dry location away from excessive heat.

• Shipping samples—package properly to minimize damage and prevent spillage during transit.

• Include a completed Sampling Report and other relevant documentation for each sample submitted. Any missing information may cause delays in testing and final certification.

If you have any questions, please contact the Seed Laboratory Manager, Chase Mowry, at

Selling Seed Out-of-State?

Are you selling your seed into another state? If so, an All State Noxious Exam is needed. You can request the All State Noxious test on the Sampling Report when submitting your sample. If you have further questions, please contact the MCIA Seed Laboratory or your MCIA field supervisor.
