Limagrain Quality Management

Within our quality control and molecular laboratories, we test the germination and physical purity as well as the genetic and GMO purity of maize, soybean and sunflower in order to provide the best quality seeds to South African farmers and ensure the best potential yield from each crop.


Excellence through Stewardship

ETS (Excellence through Stewardship®) is an international organisation which recognises the adoption of stewardship programs and quality management systems for the full life cycle of genetically modified products, from discovery in laboratory to commercialisation.

Limagrain obtained its first certificate in 2015, and Link Seed successfully completed the audit in 2018 to be part of the global audit program.

This allows Link Seed to join other LG-branded seeds in the USA, Brazil, Argentina, and Europe as being part of a world-class organisation for quality and stewardship.
