SeedsWhat would Kansas's economy do without agriculture and the seeds that anchor the industry? Because it's so important, you need to understand the Kansas Seed Law. It benefits both agricultural industry and the general public, so here's a reminder about what it is and how it applies to you. What is the Kansas Seed Law? Farmers need seeds to grow the crops that feed the general public and livestock in Kansas and around the world. They need clear information that allows them to plan how much seed to plant, determine how long the crop will take to mature and how much the yield will be. They can't afford to guess at crop yields, germination times or seed purity. The Seed Law provides uniform labels for all seeds and assists farmers in managing their crops, schedules and income every year. That way, the farmer can survive, food prices remain affordable for the general public and the economy remains stable. According to the law, labels must include the type of seeds inside each seed packet, germination information, including test dates and seed purity information. It also indicates if the seeds are treated to resist diseases and the name of the country or state where the seeds originated. Which Seeds Must Comply? The seed law applies to grass, forage, legume, fiber and cereal crops, including mixtures of these seed types. Horticultural seeds are not included. Who Enforces the Law? The Agricultural Commodities and Assurance Program (ACAP) ensures the Kansas Seed Law is being followed. They inspect labels for accuracy and verify that all required information is included. If a seed package does not comply for any reason, it is pulled from the shelf until it does comply. They also ensure seed dealers are properly registered and licensed. Retail and wholesale businesses that sell seeds much also obtain a license and renew it each year by September 1. As a farmer, you need the Kansas Seed Law. You also need crop insurance. Understand and use both of these tools as you grow crops on your Kansas farm. Content provided by Transformer Marketing.
