Pre and Post Trials of Seeds and Plant Material


Legislation governing the quality control of plants used as growing material covers the whole production chain, from testing a new variety to monitoring seed production and seed multiplications. The following executive control tasks are carried out by ILVO’s variety research group:

  • Official pre- and post-control trials for grasses, flax and potatoes
  • Perform support activities of the Seed Testing Laboratory. The Seed Testing Laboratory delivers official testing reports concerning moisture content, purity, germination, other seed count and health testing on seeds. ILVO’s seed testing laboratory is accredited by International Seed Testing Association (ISTA)
