Alexander Harley Seeds is first Scottish company in European Seed Treatment Assurance scheme (ESTA)
Alexander Harley Seeds from Milnathort, north of Edinburgh has become the first Scottish participant in the European Seed Treatment Assurance scheme (ESTA). Harleys Seeds is one of the last remaining wholesale seed merchants in the UK. The company processes cereal and pulse seed for the merchant trade in Northern England and the whole of Scotland.
Lorne Watson, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be the first in Scotland to achieve this accreditation. As one of the largest wholesale seed merchants in the UK, we are committed to delivering the highest standard of seed treatment application to our customers.
“We are very pleased that our facilities have met the strict requirements demanded by ESTA, and this will future proof our business in the years to come. For Harleys, it shows that we have best practice at the heart of everything we do. We are delighted that our efforts and determination to be a market leader have been recognised in this way.”
Garry Rudd, the ESTA Technical Manager at AIC said he was pleased that Alexander Harley Seeds had joined the scheme and received accreditation.
ESTA was devised by the European Seed Association (ESA) in response to the EU Directive (2010/21) which requires insecticidal seed treatments to ‘only be performed in professional seed treatment facilities.’ The directive resulted from incidences of bee deaths in Germany, Austria and France, particularly associated with treated maize seed.
