Certified Seed Growers Still May Apply for Field Inspection

["Applications for field inspections without late fees will be accepted until June 30.", ""]

The North Dakota State Seed Department is extending the application deadline for field inspections due to weather-related problems in the state. Certified seed growers still are encouraged to apply for a field inspection as soon as possible.

“We realize that wet weather has delayed planting in most areas of the state,” says Steve Sebesta, deputy seed commissioner. “Considering the difficulties growers have endured this spring, seed growers may not have had time to think about submitting applications for their seed fields. The Seed Department is taking this action to help alleviate further hardship during difficult times.”

Applications for field inspections without late fees will be accepted until June 30.

Application forms are available at county North Dakota State University Extension Service offices or the Seed Department. Electronic forms are available on line at http://www.nd.gov/seed/forms/ndseedform.pdf.
