Seed production

Seed production and quality management

Wageningen Seed Centre (WSC) studies the principles that underlie the physiology of seed development in various crops.

The objectives are:

  • to discover general indicators for optimal crop husbandry,
  • to ensure a high yield and high quality, and
  • to assess the period when the seed is most vital and ready to be harvested.

This knowledge benefits farmers who produce their own seed, as well as seed producers in the commercial market.
