How We Research & Innovate

We Pick & Test Our Products With You In Mind

Since 1879, generations of farmers and growers have trusted Harris Seeds for quality seeds and supplies. Our team works closely with suppliers and attends National and Regional Field Days — seeking vegetable and ornamental varieties that offer you a strong disease package, uniform plant habit, and quality fruit or blooms.

At our growing facility, we test the latest seed varieties from the finest plant seed producers. Our in-house germination lab regularly analyzes seed germination and vigor using testing procedures prescribed by the Association of Official Seed Analysts. The result? Our germination rates exceed federal and state standards for both vegetable seed and ornamental seed varieties.

But testing doesn’t stop with us. Through our Grower Trial Program, we partner with small and large growers like you to provide feedback on new products.

So you can keep counting on our seeds and supplies for generations to come.

Our In-House Technology

We Invest In Tech To Keep Up With Growing Demand

As the seed industry grows, we know it’s critical that you continue to receive your seeds in time for planting season. With nearly one million packages sent out each year, we’re always looking to increase our packaging efficiency. That’s why we recently invested in state-of-the-art seed packaging machines — allowing us to work faster and reduce backorders during critical planting time.
