Mississippi Foundation Seed
Mississippi Foundation Seed exists as the basic and primary link between public plant breeders and the certified seed producers of Mississippi. The Foundation is a unit of the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station of Mississippi State University.
Mississippi Foundation Seed was established and organized under the direction of the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station. Its purpose is providing Mississippi certified seed producers consistent and continuing access to high quality seed of newly developed and existing public plant varieties of various species produced in Mississippi. This is accomplished through the efficient multiplication of 'breeder seed' to become foundation seed that is the basis for certified seed production.
