Consistent and superior seed performance positions seed retailers to accelerate their brand and build customer preference. Quality control testing of seed is mandated by regulations in both Canada and the United States, which serve to limit the distribution of undesirable weeds and sets minimum benchmarks for germination. Beyond compliance testing, advanced laboratory testing including seed health, vigor and physical characteristics, is used for internal quality evaluation. These comprehensive diagnostics differentiate seed lots and identify potential risks critical to field performance.

Objective

This webinar examines Canadian and US regulatory compliance as well as potential internal benchmark assessments to determine seed quality and build confidence in seed selection decisions.

Members of the North American seed testing team will outline the goals accomplished by seed quality control testing, as well as the laboratory services that build a thorough understanding of seed attributes and performance in various environmental growing conditions.
