TREATED SEED SERVICE EXPANSION

Understanding the value of seed enhancements and the need for accurate measurements and plant health, we are now delivering quantifiable results to align conditioning with label rates and seed quality control.

ANIMAL NUTRITION TESTING, INVESTING FOR EFFICIENCY

With our two goals to increase precision and build out our service portfolio, we have committed investment into NIR instrumentation and accelerated labor to calibrate to many sample matrices.

BACTERIAL LEAF STREAK IN WHEAT TISSUE VALIDATED

Our genetic confirmation of bacterial leaf streak in wheat leaf tissue, new in 2021, is ready to support visual diagnosis during the growing season.

SOIL HEALTH BENCHMARKING, START NOW

Physical and biological parameters to gauge soil health are gaining traction, as clients move into aggregate stability, bulk density, permeability, active carbon, carbon burst and soil labile amino-nitrogen analysis to benchmark soil health.

FEED ANALYSIS FULFILLING COMPLEX COMPONENTS

SGS offers a full selection of testing, nutrients of course, but also amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins.

PARTNERING WITH SEED COMPANIES FOR ISTA QUALITY ASSURANCE

With our first post-accreditation ISTA audit successfully completed, we are confident to partner with seed sector companies to efficiently analyze seed quality for export and deliver company sampler training.
