Seed Programs

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.
