Seed testing ensures seed quality throughout all processes – Continuous monitoring of seed performance allows for improvements to be made at each stage.
Seed is tested in our laboratory which is fully accredited by Official Seed Testing Station (OSTS).
Quality control is a vital element of our services. We offer seed testing for germination and additional quality inspections through INCOTEC Analytical Lab Europe BV.
We are working to the standard ISO9001:2008
At Elsoms we are ESTA accredited. ESTA certification is the QA scheme for the application of plant protection products to seed, handling and use of treated seed to ensure that seed treatments are applied to the highest quality standards by professional treaters. Elsoms have been treating seed for over 30 years. We use the latest in seed technology and processing to bring customers the highest quality seed products available. Only ESTA certified treatment facilities may use the ESTA logo on their products to document compliance and facilitate the free movement of seed through the European Union.
Our seed analysts are fully OSTS trained by the NIAB (National Institute of Agricultural Botany) seed testing station. If you would like to know more about the work they do, please contact our head office.
