Introducing New Varieties
The IL Crop Handbook of Seed Certification outlines all of the options for the introduction of new varieties. One option is the National Variety Review Board or NVRB system. Applications and deadlines for crops with a NVRB are posted on the Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies web site, www.aosca.org. The following NVRB links can be used to access detailed information, forms and deadlines for each crop. NVRB information is also available for alfalfa/legumes, cotton and grass on the AOSCA web site.For information on new corn inbred lines, please consult the Application for Corn Inbred Eligibility file posted on the forms page of our web site or contact us at 217-359-4053.
