Why Certified Seed?

I used to grow crops from our own bin run seed prior to a friend of mine encouraging me to start growing seed for him.
Was I surprised, when I started planting higher pedigreed seed…my yields went up! Significantly.
I didn’t expect that! Yet whenever you or I talk to seed growers they will always tell you the same thing. Their high pedigreed Breeder plots always yield significantly higher… the foundation and registered will out yield the certified…and certified will out yield the common. I know this is true most of the time though I’m not sure why.

On our farm we’ve come to the simple conclusion “The higher the Pedigreed, the higher the yield”

Whether you choose our variety or the competitions varieties – for your best returns year after year use certified seed. It pays.
