AOSA was formed in 1908 in response to initial attempts by individual states to develop seed laws. Initial priorities included, as was defined in the constitution, an attempt to seek uniformity and accuracy in methods, results, and reports. Objectives include efforts to perfect and make publicly known, through publication, uniform rules for seed testing, to establish the AOSA Rules for Testing Seeds which are generally adopted by most states as the rules for testing seeds in their respective states, and to ensure that testing procedures are standardized between analysts and between laboratories.
