The purpose of the AOSA/SCST Referee Committee is to provide a forum for the cooperative implementation of projects related to seed testing among a number of seed laboratories. These projects are chosen and developed in order to fulfill one or more of the following purposes:
1) To promote standardization and improvement in seed testing;
2) To provide opportunities for feedback, training and continuing education to seed analysts;
3) To address issues of concern within a specific area of the Seed Industry and to identify areas where more research is needed; and
4) To test new methods and gather data in order to support a Rules change proposal.
If you would like to participate in any active referees, please contact the referee organizers.
In order for our referee projects to provide useful data for the referee organizers, it is vital for all participants to complete all portions and return them to the referee organizers in a timely manner.
