Source Identified Seed (Yellow Tag)– The Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA) has an approved seed certification class for native seed collection called the “Source Identified Class.” Seed that was harvested following approved guidelines for this seed class will receive a YELLOW certified seed tag which verifies to the purchaser that the location of seed harvest was verified by the certifying agency.
Seed Testing and Labeling – Seed companies should include a clear label on each bag of seed that shows the results of purity and germination tests. The Association of Official Seed Analysts oversees these tests. Purity of the seed is the percentage of the labeled species by weight. The percentages of other crop, weed, and inert material should also be included. Finally, the label should show the percentage of the seed count that will germinate.
