Seed Certification Program
WSDA's Seed Program operates the certification program for agricultural seeds in Washington under the auspices of the national Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA), and the international Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The program includes field inspection, seed testing, record keeping, and documentation. Crops include grass, alfalfa, clover, beans, corn and other miscellaneous species. Wheat, barley, oat, triticale, buckwheat, chickpea, field pea, lentil, and forest reproductive material are inspected and documented under agreement with Washington State Crop Improvement Association, a non-profit organization.
