All commercial certified seed production is done on a contractual basis. Our seed production representative meets with farmers to establish growing agreements while scheduling for upcoming seasons. Throughout the growing season, Northern Seed, LLC is actively involved in monitoring quality, timing, and production. During harvest, Northern Seed LLC ensures the variety and generation are securely preserved for future seed buyers. Grain production is done on a contractual basis as well. Growers purchase our certified seed and agree to grow a contracted amount of grain agreage for the upcoming season. The grain is then bought back by variety on an Identity Preserved basis and stored at our facility according to variety. Here at Northern Seed, we monitor all of our products from even before the time the seed is planted to the time it is harvested.
