The purpose of the Montana State Seed Laboratory is to test seed samples for farmers, seedsmen, Montana Seed Growers Association, Montana Department of Agriculture, and the seed industry.  Seed testing provides the needed information for determining the value of the seed. These tests determine percentages of pure seed, other crop seed, weed seed, inert matter and germination in seeds used for planting.

 
Testing seed gives the individual a broad understanding of the germination potential and possible weed contamination of a seed lot.  By knowing the results of the tests, individuals can evaluate the potential of a seed lot before planting to ensure adequate stand and maximum yield.  


If you have any questions please feel free to contact us as we are here to assist you in your seed testing needs.
