Seed Certification

The Division of Animal and Plant Health certifies seed potatoes in Maine to control the level of regulated pests in Maine’s potato industry. Certification is a three-step process:

    1. Inspection of seed potatoes during the summer.
    2. Disease evaluation of samples submitted for lab testing.
    3. Inspection during shipping to ensure the potatoes meet grade standards
