Certified

The standard misconception about certified seed is that it is a more expensive option than common seed. But when you consider the value of returns on higher yields, the numbers point to the tremendous benefits of planting certified seed. Using only certified seed also reduces the risk of disease, which further adds to your profit margin.

Demand varies throughout the year, so be sure to call and book your order early!
