Forage tip: Common vs. certified seed

Once you have selected a forage variety, it is recommended to buy a quality seed that is high in germination rate and free of weed seed. Buying certified seed guarantees that the requirements for both of these parameters has been met and should be the first purchasing option.

Non-certified seed, or common seed, does not guarantee a certain level of performance as the specific variety is unknown, whereas certified seed has met federal and state requirements to verify that performance has not been compromised or contaminated via cross pollination with lower-producing varieties. Once a seed source has been located, be sure to order seed well in advance of planting to assure that it will be available when needed.

Educational programs of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
