Dear Brian,

When I was setting up my lab last year I looked into a software that could
do this and more. 

My choice was LabStore from the laboratory of Pamela Stanley. It was not
designed for seed stocks but it does a pretty good job at it. And I am very
happy with the software. 

I have to say though that my preference was strongly influenced by the
software being Open Source. I wanted to have the option of modifying the
software to better suit my needs.

You can check it out at:

Best regards,

-- Rodrigo
