Seed Central is a public-private partnership.

Its purpose is to energize the seed industry cluster surrounding UC Davis and to contribute to the economic development in the region and beyond.

Seed Central facilitates communication & research collaboration between the seed industry and UC Davis in order to bring science to market faster.

UC Davis is a world leader in seed, plant and agricultural sciences. Some 100 seed and seed-related companies are located near UC Davis and benefit greatly from its proximity, but the influence of UC Davis extends throughout the USA and far beyond.

Established in 2010, Seed Central is an initiative of the Seed Biotechnology Center at UC Davis and SeedQuest, joined by a growing number of companies and organizations in the global seed and food industry.
