    2015 PVP forms are due in the OCIA office Friday,
   December 4th. Make sure you have the appropriate
   certification label attached and buyer's signature &
   date of sale.

 

   A reminder about saving Doublestop CL Plus seed. 
   Seed from Clearfield varieties cannot be saved for
   replanting, even on your own farm.  Whether or not
   you spray Beyond herbicide has no effect on this law,
   as the Clearfield gene in these varieties is protected
   by a utility patent.  This is a different law & set of
   rules than standard PVP.  The BASF stewardship
   guidelines can be found at:

  The 2016 pocket calendars have arrived.  Please
  contact the OCIA office if you would like one.
