Conditioning Certified Seed
Seed conditioners play an integral role in the delivery of quality seed products for the agricultural industry. Any seed conditioner may be designated by the Seed Department as an “approved conditioner” to condition field-inspected seed for final certification if the conditioning plant is properly designed, equipped and managed in order to maintain the identity and purity of a seed lot.
Designation as a North Dakota Approved Conditioner permits one to condition seed that has passed field inspection by an authorized NDSSD inspector. Approved conditioners are responsible for maintaining the purity and identity of seed throughout the conditioning process.
