Locally owned seed labs have the agility to deviate from standard tests, upon request. That means that growers and seed sellers can raise or lower temperatures for testing, to give an indication of how certain lots will before in the ground.
SeedX has been busy with custom tests that do just that; assist growers, greenhouse managers, transplant managers, dealers and seed breeders with custom testing. SeedX's room germination units have the capacity of 20 stand alone germinators, capable of running up to 50 tests at a time for a single client. Stand alone germinators can be set for temperatures similar to those found in Yuma this time of year. These separate units can also be turned down to mimic the cold temperatures found in Salinas and South County in January.
Clients are welcome to visually inspect seed in the lab during the germination process. Observation combined with written reports often lend toward better planting decisions, production bookings and sales indicators. Knowing the quality of your seed before you try to sell it is an invaluable tool.
SeedX has been busy with custom germs , purities and custom tests for clients throughout California. Want to know more about your seed for the upcoming 2016 year ? Call us to find out about the custom testing we can offer.
