The Oklahoma Seed Law is a consumer protection and labeling law. It requires agricultural or vegetable seed to be labeled with specific information to inform the consumer about the quality of the seed they are buying. This information must include the kind and variety of seed, percentage of pure seed, percentage of inert matter, percentage of other crop seed, percentage of weed seed, the name and number of noxious weed seed per pound, the origin, percentage of germination and the date the seed was tested. The name and address of the firm or individual who labeled or distributed the seed must also be included on the label.
The Law gives the State Board of Agriculture the authority to sample and test the seed to determine if it is correctly labeled. It also requires all firms or individuals who sell or distribute seed in Oklahoma to have a valid Oklahoma Seed Dealer License and to pay inspection fees on the seed they label.
