The American Seed Trade Association updated its Guide to Seed Quality Management Practices to include phytosanitary components.

"The original guide, released in 2008, was well received by the seed industry," said Ric Dunkle, ASTA senior director of seed health and trade. "When we released it, people began looking at it and coming back to us with recommendations, which have been taken into consideration in the new version."

The Guide to Seed Quality Management is designed as an educational tool and to provide general guidance to assist companies in developing and implementing their quality management systems. The guide provides information for maintaining seed product integrity from incorporation of a trait into a breeding program through commercial seed production and sale.
