The PGG McKennon Seed Plant employees are proud of the quality of seed they process each day. The team has a combined 80 years experience in the business and is driven to provide you only the best seed. Did you know, that the PGG McKennon Seed Plant facility is registered and inspected by the Oregon Seed CertificationService? This means that PGG meets the standards set forth by the state to ensure the varietal purity and seed quality.
Certified seed must meet several standards such as genetic purity, inert purity, germination, and be free of all noxious weeds. The certified seed that is processed by PGG is held to a higher standard. When we review samples from the cleaner if the lot shows any unallowed weeds the entire lot is rejected. The seed processed through the McKennon Seed Plant is certified with a few exceptions. Certified seeds are produced from registered or foundation seed lines. Using certified will help you maximized your yield potential.
By using certified seed you ensure that your seed meets the highest standards of quality and consistency. If you would like to review the certified seed lab lot analysis of the seed variety you plan to use please contact us.
