Laboratory Testing

Our Lab
Our seed lab began as part of an ongoing commitment to quality and to provide on-site testing for our production lots. Real-time mill checks allow us to cut production time and reduce loss. Our lab has expanded to offer AOSA and Canadian Seed analysis in germination and physical purity. Universal Seed Company has assembled a team of experienced, professional seed analysts led by our Quality Manager to conduct our testing. We are passionate about seed testing, working to develop new testing protocols and promoting standardization in seed analysis. Work with us to determine the testing that will best suit your needs.
