Application to grow and certify seed

The application and certification procedures are online procedures. The online process reduces paperwork, accelerates the communication of information, allows inspection reports (Field and Seed) to be accessed at any time, and makes all aspects of the application/reporting/certification process faster and more efficient. California is the first of any Crop Improvement Association in the country to make the entire process available online.

You will need to know your company log in and password. If you do not have this information please call CCIA at 530-752-0544.
