High levels of Bunt in wheat or triticale have been known to render such crops unmarketable. This is why we take every possible precaution to ensure our retail produce gives you the best and possibly only chance of maximum yields.
If you are considering home saving some of your own seed we strongly recommend you have your own produce put through the same regime of rigorous seed tests that we do as part of our seed testing service, in order to ensure you are not using inferior material.
When compared to the financial return on yields it really is a small price to pay and can be regarded as a wise investment. We have been using our own facilities for testing for many years now and are pleased to inform you we are now prepared to offer the same services at, we believe, the most competitive rates you will find anywhere.
If you do compare our prices, particularly on cereals, to others it is important to ask if the package you are getting includes a rapid viability and VIGOUR test. Many don’t and charge extra if you require them. Furthermore some outlets cannot do the VIGOUR test, but where they do it is often charged separately to the viability thereby greatly increasing the cost.
There is little point in having high germination seed if it doesn’t have acceptable vigour. Our cereal test packages always include these two essential tests and in most cases are still cheaper than other providers packages that don’t.
