Why seed testing?

Seed selection is one of the first and most important decisions that producers must make each year.  This investment is significant. Seed costs for major agricultural crops can run in the hundreds of dollars per acre and have continued to increase in recent years. The inclusion of herbicide, insect, nematode and disease resistance, coupled with improved seed protectants have contributed to the overall value of agricultural seed and increased costs to producers. Producers willing to make that level of investment require the most accurate and up-to-date information to make informed decisions on seeding rates and field production strategies.

LDAF field inspectors collect samples of agricultural and vegetable seeds prior to shipment to producers. Those samples are tested by our Seed Testing Laboratory for regulatory compliance and to provide producers with the most current information on the quality of specific seed lots.

The information provided in the link below gives specific information on corn, cotton, and soybean seed lots sampled by LDAF field inspectors and tested by our Seed Testing Laboratory. The samples are collected and tested according to Association of Official Seed Analysts (AOSA) rules and are representative only of the specific seed lot, or portion of a seed lot that was available at the time and location the sample was collected.
