High quality seeds that germinate efficiently are the key to a successful crop production cycle.

We have extensive experience of hundreds of seed species, and our germination tests support the international seed trade through sampling, testing and the issuance of Orange International Certificates (OIC) and Blue International Certificates (BIC), a critical requirement of importing seeds.
