The Wyoming Seed Certification Service is a function of the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station of the University of Wyoming. The authority for seed certification comes from the Wyoming Seed Law. Standards are developed by the Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA) whose authority comes from the Federal Seed Act.
To make available to the seed growers of Wyoming, a quality seed certification program compatible with AOSCA and other state seed certification agencies. To respond to the educational, research, and other service needs of the seed growers.
To inspect seed fields submitted for certification to determine if they meet the existing standards. The information from the field inspection, State Seed Lab, and the Plant Disease Lab are reviewed by Wyoming Seed Certification to determine if a lot of seed meets all standards. Seed lots meeting minimum standards are issued certified tags.
