Revisions to NSHS Methods

January 2017:

Several NSHS-approved methods are linked to official methods of ISTA, the International Seed Testing Association. As of Jan 1, 2017, ISTA published revisions to several methods that are NSHS-approved. These are minor revisions, and they have been adopted by NSHS after review by the NSHS Administration Unit.

Minor revisions were made to NSHS methods Be 1.2, Be 3.1, Be 5.1, Pe 1.1, Pe 1.4, Pe 2.1, Pe 3.1, Pe 4.1, Br 1.1, Rb 2.1, Rb 3.1, Cb 3.1, Cb 4.1, and Cb 5.1.

Labs accredited to perform these methods may adopt the new versions at any time between Jan 2017 until their next accreditation renewal. During accreditation renewals occurring after Jan 2017, auditors will expect to see adoption of the revised methods. For further information, contact us at
