  HEADLINES  

     Changes made to standards at recent
             Annual Mtg. These changes will become 
             effective immediately.

  •    Establishment of a minimum test weight of
       56 pounds per bushel for the Certified class of
       wheat seed.  There will still be no minimum test
       weight for the Foundation or Registered classes.
  •     Any sample of wheat submitted for laboratory
       analysis and found to contain rye and/or
        triticale
    in any amount will be rejected for
       certification and no re-cleaning and re-testing
       will be permitted.
     

  8/11/17 IMPORTANT UPDATE:  There seems
  to be a little confusion on adding test weight to the
  certification labels.  This is NOT a state law and
  therefore does not have to be listed on the tag.
  It is a new requirement effective this year that was
  submitted to the OCIA Board by the Small Grains
  Committee at the Annual Mtg. in February that ALL
  CERTIFIED CLASS OF WHEAT SEED must meet the
  56 lb/bu test weight.  Again, this is NOT mandatory
  that you list test weight on the tag but can if you
  so desire.  If you have any questions, contact the
  OCIA office.
 

  

  Correction to the High Plains Journal Insert: 

  Apparently I made a mistake with the telephone number for Richard
  Coit on his LCS Chrome, Doublestop, Bentley, and Gallagher in the
  High Plains Journal.  The correct number should be 580-744-0354.
  You may also refer to his ad in the Journal for the correct
  information.  I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have
  caused anyone.

   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:
