Our Seed Management Services
Cherry Hill Coolstores will guarantee our services on Seed Growers seed. If you buy certified seed which is presented to Cherry Hill in good condition, and it breaks down, we will replace our cutting and services at no charge. This guarantee specifically refers to seed piece breakdown (i.e. rot), and refers to seed which is delivered directly to Cherry Hill Coolstores from the seed paddock for chemical application, coolstoring and cutting. In order for this guarantee to be valid, the Buyer must make claims within 24-hours of the seed leaving Cherry Hill Coolstores and before planting.
In order for this guarantee to be valid, the buyer must:
- Purchase the seed grower to grower, i.e., not from block;
- The tonnes of seed must be grown, cut and coolstored at Cherry Hill Coolstores; and
- Claims must be made within 24-hours of seed leaving Cherry Hill Coolstores and before planting.
A determination of acceptable seed can be measured via the use of the TIAR Seed Certification Specifications.
There appears to be some confusion with the terms and conditions of our seed-handling guarantee. Let us explain …
If you engage Cherry Hill to store and cut your seed potatoes and the seed (when delivered to you) has unplantable faults, like seed piece rot or cut sets, which are unacceptable to you – we will grade the seed to an acceptable standard at no cost to you.
If this cannot be achieved, we will refund the costs of cool storage, bin hire and cutting of those tonnes affected.This guarantee covers all certified seed stored at Cherry Hill, which has been delivered to us in a disease free condition.
Our commitment to this guarantee gives you the confidence that if we do not get our input right we will be responsible for those costs.
When there is seed piece breakdown it is often a combination of issues, some of which are out of our control. However, we are determined to make sure our input is positive and responsible.
Make sure your seed is delivered in to us as soon as possible after digging so fungicide can be applied.
