About Us

Myrna Smith

My first introduction to agriculture came at birth, being the daughter of a farm and ranching family in south central Texas. I have a degree in Botany from the University of California at Santa Barbara. My education has been very helpful in both seed identification for purities and for understanding germination issues. My work experience in seed testing includes twelve years at Ransom Seed Lab and two years at AMM Seed Testing. I learned from some of the best analysts in the seed testing industry, including my now business partner and friend, Donna Grubisic.

Our business specializes in germination and purity testing for vegetables, herbs and flowers. We feel we have the experience, the education, and the desire to provide customers with a superior level of service. Pure Harvest gives us the link we need to provide our customers with their data as it is completed.

My formal education was at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo majoring in Ornamental Horticulture. With the knowledge obtained from college and my love of plants I ventured into nursery work and tissue culture. In moving to the Santa Barbara area I had the opportunity for employment at a seed testing lab, Ransom Seed Lab. There I stayed. I learned about seed testing and the world of seeds. In 1994 (Portland, Oregon) I passed the RST exam and became a member of the Society of Commercial Seed Technologists (SCST). After working for 28 years at Ransom Seed Lab I took a big leap to start a co-owned independent seed testing lab with another seed analyst and friend, Myrna Smith. Our new independent seed testing lab, MD Seed Analysis, Inc., will be performing germination and purity tests on vegetables, flowers and herbs.
