Would you trust your project to a bag of seed without this tag ?
That's right, that little Oregon Certified Blue Tag is your only guarantee that the seed in that bag is the variety/varieties specified & that it is top quality.Without the tag, you could be buying floor sweepings- or worse !
The Oregon Seed Certification program establishes the genetic purity & germination of varieties, blends, and mixtures. The certification process begins with the proper field history before production & continues through the bagging of a seed lot with every step independently verified by Oregon Seed Certification personnel. Each seed lot to be certified is sampled by Certification personnel & tested in the OSU seed laboratory, so the seed you buy is the seed that was tested. If even one standard in this process failed, the lot is uncertified.
