Our laboratory

At the service of quality


Terrena Semences has since 1981 had a laboratory devoted to quality control of seeds, and it investigates over 20 000 samples a year.



Either routinely in relation to our products, or in response to external requests, we:

  • Monitor germination according to ISTA standards or specific standards requested.
  • Monitor purity.
  • Monitor certification.

We take samples in the course of processing, store them in climate-controlled facilities and maintain computerised records, in order to ensure complete traceability.

Added value

The laboratory of Terrena Semence also has facilities for sorting and for micro-calibration.

It is responsible for sorting batches with high added value, such as hybrid cauliflowers and hybrid celery, produced in polytunnels by the vegetable-seed department.
