Seednet has established effective working relationships with a network of seed processing plants distributed throughout Australia.
These processing plants have been chosen on the basis of geographic location, proximity to seed producers, ability to distribute product efficiently and the capacity to process seed to Seednet's Quality Assured standards. The geographic spread of selected processors provides a diverse range of options for processing and distribution of quality assured product across a full range of crop types.
Seednet seeks to use processors that meet or exceed the standards required for accreditation under the Quality Assurance program. Ongoing compliance with these standards is a continuing condition as a selected Seednet processor. The quality assurance program defines procedures for:
- seed receival
- seed cleaning
- seed treatment
- seed storage
- packaging and labelling
- seed dispatch
Seednet has extensive practical experience in seed processing and is familiar with the standards of the various seed processors located throughout Australia. Seednet is selective in its use of seed processors and will use only those facilities, which meet, or exceed, our standards. These seed processors must comply with our full range of Quality Assurance(QA) procedures and must be able to supply the relevant documentation to demonstrate QA compliance.
