Bulk Seed Sales

The seed industry in North Dakota has evolved to meet the needs of larger farms and farm equipment. Today’s farm operators expect the ease and efficiency of filling trucks and large seeders quickly. Consequently, the majority of seed sold in North Dakota today is sold in bulk.

Bulk seed presents different challenges than bagged seed and maintaining varietal identity, seed purity and quality are critical. Therefore, bulk retailers that sell certified seed are regulated by the Seed Department to ensure they can meet the minimum standards for handling certified seed.

Any facility may be designated by the Seed Department as an approved bulk retailer to sell certified seed if the facility is properly designed, equipped and managed to maintain the identity and purity of a seed lot.

Designation as a North Dakota Approved Bulk Retailer authorizes one to handle certified seed. Approved bulk retailers are responsible for maintaining the purity and identity of seed throughout handling and properly managing records.
