Our Services

SFR Seed is a full-service production and research farm. We manage the entire seed increase process from planting seed stock to cleaning, packaging, and shipping the final product.

We manage field trials from start to finish - site design and packaging to harvest, processing, and shipping.

Parent Seed Production

We specialize in soybean parent seed production from as small as three-foot, single row increases to 20+ acres. We have the infrastructure and rigorous standard operating procedures to ensure seed purity from planting to harvest to cleaning, packaging, and shipping.

Plot Trial Research

True to our legacy as an agricultural research farm, we conduct plot trials for yield, efficacy, and other specialized protocols. We have the ability to plant single rows of three feet or four-row plots of twenty feet. We can hand plant and harvest, thresh single plants and single rows, and combine harvest plots to collect yield and moisture data.  

Seed Cleaning & Packaging

An essential part of production is the seed cleaning process. In 2021, we break ground on a customized conditioning line to improve product quality and drastically reduce the risk of equipment contamination. Conditioned seed is packaged and labeled according to the specifications of the customer.

Rice Seed Stock Production

 SFR Seed grows and purifies specialty rice seed stock. These antebellum-era varieties are popular with restaurants and consumers looking for the unique flavors of aromatic rice, Carolina Gold, Charleston Gold, and the newest variety Santee Gold. 

Material Compliance

We work regularly with regulated and stewarded material. Our staff is well-trained in procedures to eliminate risk of unintentional release. In our 30+ of years of experience, we have never had an incident. Often, our standards are applauded during routine audits.
