After extensive work carried out by the Flower Seed Testing Committee (FSC), the first edition of the ISTA Handbook on Flower Seed Testing was published in 2008. A supplement was distributed in 2010 and a new electronic edition released in 2020. This includes 62 working sheets, each dedicated to one or more flower species belonging to a genus, or two closely related genera.  The Handbook is the Committee’s main output, aimed to provide a useful guide for laboratories testing flower seeds. The committee intends to continue the work to include more flower species, as well as herbs, spices, and medicinal species.
