What’s in a bag of Certified Seed?

New cereMPS bag logoal grain varieties are continually being developed by Land Grant Universities in the United States, and these new releases represent years of research and development.  Plant breeders study and work with plant genetics to develop the most desirable  agronomic traits, including yield, disease resistance, and even herbicide tolerance.

Nearly all newly released varieties are licensed and are eligible for protection under the United States Plant Variety Protection Act of 1994 (PVP94). While this discourages unauthorized propagation and sale, or”brown-bagging,” of licensed, protected varieties, it, more importantly, provides a means by which the developer can continue to bring newer varieties to the market place.

Quality seed is produced by approved conditioners.  Planting certified seed assures you, the grower, that your seed has passed rigorous standards.  This means that you know what you are planting.  Would you purchase seed corn without an analysis tag, guaranteeing its contents?  So, why would you expect any less from your oat, wheat, or barley seed.  Plant the best, and expect the best.  Certified seed doesn’t cost, it pays!
