June 3rd to 9th – Portland, Oregon
2016 Annual Meeting

Welcome Sponsors!

Each year the AOSA & SCST Joint Annual Meeting brings together hundreds of seed analysts, technologists, and scientists from both the United States and Canada with a common goal to further advance seed testing and research. These professionals serve you by providing seed testing information which enables you to sell, market, and to export your seed around the world. Their work is an integral part of our thriving and expanding industry.

On behalf of both the AOSA and SCST, we cordially invite you to take part in this year’s meeting. There are a number of opportunities available for you to contribute to the overall success of this year’s event. Additionally, you will have a chance to increase the visibility of your company amongst the AOSA-SCST memberships.
