Oregon Seed Certification has made adjustments to our services in accordance with the Oregon State University CORVID-19 response policy. 

Dear Customers,

Oregon State University (OSU) and the state of Oregon have moved to a higher level of COVID-19 response. In light of this, the Oregon Seed Certificate Service and OSU Extension are adjusting our daily operations. Following OSU policy, our offices will be closed to visitors from the public until further notice, including crop sign-ups. All OSU Extension offices are also closed to the general public for the foreseeable future. Please do as much certification related business online as possible. If you are needing assistance signing up fields or working through our online system, we will have staff available to talk with you. Please feel free to call us at 541-737-4513. We will continue to take orders for tags and tag stock, however, please be aware that there may be an increased turnaround time for these services. Seed samplers will still be conducting seed certification business, but please help them follow OSU rules by limiting your interactions with them. Be assured that our employees are closely following OSU guidelines on hygiene.

We appreciate your cooperation and continued support.

Sincerely,

Andrew Altishin
Program Manager and Seed Certification Specialist
