Since 2000, the Agroscope Seed-Testing Laboratory has been accredited by the ISTA (International Seed Testing Association). This means that it is officially allowed to examine seed samples from Swiss and foreign seed merchants as well as from Agroscope projects, and issue ISTA certificates, which are required in the international seed trade. In this way, Agroscope helps ensure that the Swiss agricultural sector has access to germinable, healthy seed. Reaccreditation is periodically necessary to ensure that the laboratory can maintain its high quality standards.
