Licensed Seed Testing Stations (LSTS)

There are currently 5 Licensed Seed Testing Stations (LSTS) in Scotland. The staff undertaking the testing are all trained and examined at a UK level. Individuals can sit a number of seed divisions, which cover various agricultural and horticultural species. The OSTS check the proficiency of the individual seed analysts throughout the year using proficiency tests and check testing. A minimum of 5% of seed will be selected at random, tested by the OSTS, and the LSTS & OSTS results compared.
