development of our own seed cleaning and processing equipment we
minimise inert matter and maximise value for money. Our reputation as

All seed is cleaned, cut-test for preliminary quality assessment,
sealed and stored under appropriate conditions. We have a permanent
seed cleaning and processing team using purpose-designed and built
and Germination Testing
Generally seed viability and germination testing is conducted on client
request, certification from independent laboratory testing can be
provided. Viability tests will be done on collections of new species
and for evaluating viability of older seed stocks.
Kimseed collectors are required to produce data sheets, pressed samples
and GPS coordinates for all species collected in order to prove
provenance and build on our herbarium. Many of the specimens have been
identified using the resources and assistance of the WA Herbarium and
the Kimseed library.
Seed is collected by our own, trained teams or one of our experienced
associate contractors. Our collectors operate in a sensitive manner,
ensuring that plants and the surrounding environment are left intact.
Native seed collection requires an expert botanical knowledge combined
with an understanding of the seed maturation process.
Collections are timed to coincide with maturation
of seed on the plant. It is collected using various methods such as
vacuum harvesting, beating, pruning, handpicking and brush harvesting.
These methods are selected and adapted to each species to obtain seed
quickly and efficiently, maintaining quality and maximising yields.
