Seed Laboratory Update

Seed growers, if you haven’t submitted your seed samples for testing, do so now!

Verifying that seed standards are met is one of the last steps in the certification process.

 Germination tests take at least seven days, and HPLC for wheat and oat variety ID testing can sometimes take longer. Rush service can be requested.

Be sure the info on your sampling report is complete and accurate.
