Quality control

Pop Vriend Seeds has production locations all over the world. But no matter where we produce our seeds, many of them end up in our warehouse in Andijk. There we have an experienced quality team that tests all our seed lots for germination, purity, moisture content, vigour, shelf life, seed borne diseases and the latest disease resistance.

Our quality procedure meets the stringent criteria of the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA). Series of tests are performed in the laboratory, in the greenhouse and on our trial fields, employees study whether the seed also performs up to standard in the open field. On top of this, we regularly have our seeds tested by private companies such as SGS and Genescan. At Pop Vriend Seeds a shipment is only allowed to leave the warehouse after it has met all our quality norms.
