The Nevada Department of Agriculture’s Seed Program provides aid to seed producers and other business entities by offering regulatory support and various seed-related services. These services include seed certification for both traditional crops and restoration species, phytosanitary inspections of crops destined for export, and analytical seed testing of seed lots for identity, viability, and purity. The seed laboratory works in conjunction with the State’s Plant Pathology Laboratory to identify seed-borne diseases. Additionally, the program executes enforcement of both state and federal seed laws intended to protect the interests of Nevada’s Seed Industry.
