The QA Center is responsible for managing and operating the entire processes of QA ranging from quality test of seed germination, pathology, and purity to storage, processing, packing, and shipment of seeds in order to convert quality seeds produced in fields into the highest quality seeds and to supply them to farmers. The QA Center is responsible for supervising the entire processes. It is trying its best to have seeds certified as the worlds’ best quality through organic coordination with related departments such as the Breeding Research Center and Biotechnology Research Center.
Constant temperature and humidity storage facility
Fine selection, disinfection, coating, and priming
A variety of good quality packaging systems
Establishment of quick and accurate modern logistics system
Seed quality test refers to the process of testing, analyzing, and evaluating seed germination, seed pathology, genetic purity, etc., which are factors that determine the quality of seeds in order to supply high quality seeds.
Supply of seeds with the best germination quality seed
Supply of disease-free seed
DNA analysis field test
the process of collecting test samples that represent small groups because it is impossible to test the entire groups.
the process of uniform-mixing and homogenization for quality test of primary samples and submitted samples
the process of placing seeds on a medium to check germination quality of seeds
Computer-based management of quality test requests and results through ERP
It is a field of plant pathology that tests seed-affecting pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi. It also studies disinfection methods.
It is a test to analyze the uniformity and identity of varieties by examining genotypes of cross-bred seeds with molecular biologic methods such as PCR. A large-capacity marker analysis system is established to examine crossbred seeds and foundation seeds. It also conducts similarity test.
It is a specialized field that tests the appearance of child plants and offtype plants by planting F1 seeds in a field and conducts a comprehensive evaluation of difference in expressive traits. It conducts uniformity and similarity test on crossbred seeds and foundation seeds.
Seed disinfection to control seed-borne pathogens and pests
Protection of seedlings from soil-borne or air-borne pathogens or pests
Improve germination speed and uniformity of seeds
It is a treatment technology that improves seed germination speed and uniformity by priming seeds so that seeds are physically ready for germination.
Seed coating is a treatment technology of applying colors and inert materials to seeds for biochemical or chemical prevention against damages to seeds or for differentiating seed products and saving labor
It is a chemical and physical seed treatment which is harmless to germination for the purpose of removing bacteria, fungi, and viruses present inside the seeds or tissues.
