Seed Programs Updated:07/2013

The Seed Programs Division is charged with ensuring that seed sold for planting purposes meets seed label guarantees and quality standards. In doing so, it prevents Louisiana from becoming a dumping ground for low quality planting seed and ensures that a mechanism is in place to provide a reliable source of high quality seed from superior new crop varieties for Louisiana producers.

The responsibilities of the Seed Programs Division are (1) Enforcement of Seed Laws and Regulations; (2) Management of the Seed Certification Program; and (3) Operation of the Official State Seed Testing Laboratory.
