Details

Seeds marketing is regulated and, for most agricultural and vegetable species, only seeds which have been certified may be marketed.

After seed has been processed, divided into seed lots, and sealed and labelled, it must be sampled and tested to confirm whether it meets the seeds standards for certification. A seed test report must be issued stating that the requirements have been achieved.

This form must be completed by the applicant to request the sampling and testing of an official sample of a qualifying seed lot.
