Field Inspection Services We Provide

Seed Certification

ICIA Seed Certification program is a systematic approach to maintain varietal purity and the identity of seed crops through standards administered by an official seed certifying agency.

Quality Assurance (QA)

ICIA Quality Assurance program provides a complete service for seed marketed as varieties, hybrids, brands or blends that are generally not labeled as certified seed.

Identity Preserved™️

IP refers to the maintenance of a product’s specific traits or characteristics through growing, production and marketing channels. ICIA can help design flexible, customized programs and serve as independent auditors.

Fall/Winter Grow-out (Puerto Rico)

This service provides our customers the opportunity to position winter (counter-seasonal) production to be shipped to other countries. The timing is advantageous to speed up the certification process for new hybrid production.
