With the notion that future farmers will continue to demand high precision and optimal seed distribution, Väderstad have opened a new seed lab. The new seed lab offers the possibility to recreate different environments and simulated field conditions, with a varied affect from workloads, heat, cold, air pressure and so on. Moreover there are rigs for durability and extensive quality testing.

- The new seed lab includes advanced measuring systems, which effectively provides exact results, says Mikael Albrecht, analysis- and test manager at Väderstad.
