Farmers have the means to carry out high-quality, economically efficient, environmentally friendly agriculture while ensuring his own safety and the quality of the harvest.
Certified seed is the result of research into plant breeding and technology. It is the future of a more competitive agriculture.
Certified seed is a guarantee of quality and traceability.
Only seeds of high genetic, physiological, physical and phytosanitary quality are certified.
These features are verified through field inspections and laboratory analysis made by specialised technical personnel.
In vegetable production, certified seeds aren’t necessary, as quality control is carried out through systems controlled from the inside.
Beyond genetic expression, guaranteeing the quality of seed is indispensable. In this sense, seed certification is essential to give guarantees to farmers, breeders, and to final consumers.
Certification consists of verifying and inspecting seeds for sowing, from their origin, during the process of production in the field, yield, and processing, until its storage and marketing, according to strict quality standards established by the applicable regulations.
WHY USE CERTIFIED SEED?
Lower sowing dose as germination and optimum health are guaranteed.
Less time in the germination of seed.
Enables investment in research for plant breeding.
New varieties are a guarantee of progress and improved yields.
