Technology and products

Pure Harvest

Pure Harvest is LIMS-like software that "manages field inspection and seed testing processes and provides timely and accurate lab results to external customers."[3] The company states "Pure Harvest is used in private, state and federal labs across the U.S.," and that the software's processes "are based carefully on [Association of Official Seed Analysts] procedures and rules."[3] It appears the software is hosted via the software as a service model in the Amazon cloud.[2][4]
