About the Colorado Seed Lab
Purity Examination determines the part of the sample that is pure seed, other crop,weed seed and inert material.
A Germination Test determines normal/good seedlings, abnormal seedlings, dead, dormant and hard seeds.
The Colorado Seed Laboratory is an official AOSA laboratory, and we also perform tests according to ISTA and Canadian standards upon request. The primary reason for having rules regarding seed testing is consistency. It should be possible to replicate the results of a viability test in any lab nationwide.
