The ISTA Seed Health Proficiency Test for detection of Phomopsis complex in Glycine max (soybean, soya bean) seeds
The aim of this proficiency test is to verify the ability of laboratories to detect Phomopsis complex in soybean seed samples. Accredited laboratories are required to participate if they hold a valid accreditation for the ISTA Method 7-016. Laboratories that are not accredited may participate as volunteers.
The samples will be ready for distribution in October and will be shipped from beginning of November.

Participants are requested to check with their customs which documents are needed to ensure the receipt of the seeds and to provide us with these details and documents. Laboratories needing an import/quarantine permit for this test round are kindly requested to obtain the permit before the 16th of September.
