A defined procedure whereby a representative part of a seed lot is taken for submission to a seed testing laboratory. Before sampling a seed lot, it is important to first ensure that the lot is uniform.
The quality of seed tested in the laboratory is minute in comparison to the size of the seed lot that it is intended to represent. To obtain uniform and accurate results it is essential that the primary, composite and submitted samples be taken from the seed lot and prepared according to methods agreed internationally, and to ensure that the sample tested in the laboratory accurately represents the composition of the seed lot in question. Likewise, in reducing the sample in the laboratory, every effort must be made to obtain a working sample that is representative of the sample submitted for testing.
