Latest Stillwater, Oklahoma, weather
Last Updated 9-19-17


     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
    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
  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.

 OCIA has created a planting record to assist you in capturing field
 information for subsequent application for certification.  It is
 strongly advised that you use this, or create your own, as it will
 ease your transition to our electronic field application this fall by
 having the information handy.  Click here for pdf, or
 here for ad editable docx document.

 Update:  Some of you are attempting to use the "MyFields online
 program for field certification.  We appreciate your efforts but
 remember, you MUST create an account first and only ONE account.
 You will receive an email notification when we have accepted your
 account and then you will be able to start entering your field
 certification applications.  If you have any questions, please do not
 hesistate to contact our office and we will do our best to walk you
 thru the process. Click here for a copy of the "How To" booklet.

   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:
