1. How does 20/20 Seed Labs fit into the Falher Seed Cleaning Plants operations?
20/20 Seed Labs plays an integral part of our incoming seed analysis. All cereals are tested for Fusarium. If there is anything found, we will not clean the product. Also we test canola for blackleg and cleavers and again if any are found, we do not clean the product. 20/20 Seed Labs has given consistent quality service to us and are very cooperative and friendly.
2. What challenges do you face in the agriculture and seed industry?
The main challenges facing the agriculture industry is inter- governmental trade disputes. The ag industry is often used as a bargaining chip for other trade issues. I feel we had a good system with the CWB and it was bartered away.
3. How can 20/20 Seed Labs assist you now and in the future?
In the future I believe 20/20 Seed Labs can assist us with keeping up with new diseases and pathogens. I also think 20/20 can help us with export grading for wheat and other products.
