What is Certified Seed?

Certified wheat seed is defined as seed of a known variety that has passed field inspection for varietal purity, which is the absence of certain weed seeds, other crop seeds and certain seed-borne diseases. In order to meet strict quality standards, Certified Seed is tested in the lab and in the field.

Let's consider the benefits of Certified Seed:


Planting high-quality, professionally conditioned seed of the latest varieties gives growers a great opportunity to minimize certain agronomic risks, such as pests and diseases, and maximize yield potential.


Every season that you replant, you lose genetic purity and profit potential that breeders have spent years building into your variety. While certification requirements vary from state to state, certain protocols like rotation, isolation and quality grading are standard among state certification programs. What does that mean for you? Varietal purity, which provides the best yield potential.


Factor in the expenses and risks that come along with storing, cleaning and treating your own seed, and there’s a good chance saving seed is actually hurting your bottom line. With Certified Seed there are no extra expenses for cleaning, moving and storing your seed.
