Cereal section provides services for identifying dry or growing material. This may be done by Electrophoresis, Grain or Whole Plant Identification. We also provide independent crop inspections out with the certification system on request.
The Cereal Cultivar Collection held at SASA was originally created in the late 1960's for UK distinctness, uniformity and stability (DUS) tests. The collection contains over 4,900 cultivars (predominantly wheat, barley and oats). It contains registered and commercially obsolete cultivars. Small quantities of seed of varieties not currently on the National List or under going testing may be supplied on request. Please contact Bob Sunter.
For further information on independent crop inspections contact Margaret Hislop.
