Laboratory analysis services are available through Agrii, we offer a broad range of analytical services on all types of seeds for sowing including commercial grain or seeds destined for bird feed, pet food or human consumption markets. The company (Agrii) is licensed by the DEFRA to operate Licensed Seed Testing Stations in accordance with EEC Seed regulations and to test seeds for seed certification purposes in the following categories – cereals, grasses, oil and fibre, legumes, and crucifers.
Agrii employ Seed Analysts within the laboratories who are also qualified and licensed by the DEFRA as crop inspectors and seed samplers. The company offers its facilities both to the seed trade and the farming community and presently services the seed testing requirements of both seed merchants and farmers in East Anglia and from many parts of the UK.
Much of the work undertaken is non statutory work for information purposes or quality control management. Many samples submitted to the station are for advisory germination or purity tests.
