The Ransom Seed Laboratory, Inc. is an independent, privately owned seed testing facility. Mrs. Aleta Meyr, R.S.T. (Registered Seed Technologist) is the owner and director of the family operation which has served the seed industry continuously since 1933. The lab offers prompt, scientific service testing on seeds for germination, purity and all-states noxious weed exams on a wide variety of vegetables, flowers, natives, herbs and field crops. A full listing of available tests are described under Services.
Our staff includes three Registered Seed Technologists, a certification issued by the S.C.S.T. (Society of Commercial Seed Technologist). Germination and purity tests are conducted in accordance with A.O.S.A. Rules for Testing Seed; or upon request, tests can be analyzed according to International Rules or Canadian Methods and Procedures.
As the owner of a small, agricultural service seed testing laboratory, it has been a joy to work closely with the seed industry, offering quality testing and problem-solving services; creating a pleasant and stimulating work environment for my employees and serving on SCST and ISTA committees to promote high industry standards.
