Qualitative characteristics were examined of five varieties of soft wheat (mila, milenka, lepoklasa, radika and pobeda), prepared for sowing in 2011 and 2012 year. The tests were applied over average samples collected out of ten randomly selected lots of C1 seed category on all five varieties. The results in this paper are related to total germination, abnormal seed, hard seed, fresh seed, dead seed, mass of 1000 grains and moisture content. The obtained results are within the prescribed legal values, indicating excellent seed quality. Total germination, mass of 1000 grains and moisture content have low variability (0,95%, 7,60% and 10,60% respectively).The abnormal seed shows high variability (43,02%), as well as the fresh seed (31,72%), hard seed is characterized with very high variability (62,76%), whereas dead seed is characterized with exceptionally high variability (132.72%). The tests were conducted in the Laboratory of Plant and Environmental Protection, at the Department of Plant and Environmental Protection of the Agricultural Faculty in Stip. The laboratory is accredited in accordance with standard EN ISO / IEC 17025:2006 for multiple methods, including methods for testing seeds quality of agricultural plants.
