Is seed testing really as straight forward as it sounds?

With Discovery Seeds Labs it is! You take a sample of your seed, you give it to us, and we test it. Then we give you valuable information about your seed. We can tell you about the purity of your seed, how well it will grow under stress, how well it will germinate, what diseases are present in the seed, and much, much more.

FAQ's

Timing for receiving your results typically varies from about 5 days to 2 weeks depending on the type of tests requested. Be sure to send your samples in to allow for enough time to have the results returned so that you have time to use the information in your seeding decisions.

The date issued refers to the date that the report of seed analysis was generated.

Once the results have been generated for your sample Discovery Seed Labs sends out a Report of Seed Analysis to the address on file. The results can also be accessed by logging into the client log in page on the Discovery Seed Labs website. You will need your log in ID and password. If you do not have this information please contact us at info@seedtesting.com or 306-249-4484.

If you are sending a pulse crop to Discovery Seed Labs for analysis we require 3 clean cups of seed or 750 grams. If you are sending a cereal for analysis include 2 clean cups of seed or 500 grams. For a sample that is related to the Canadian Seed Institute (CSI) please send 1 kg of seed.
