Changes made to standards at 2017 annual meeting.

Establishment of a minimum test weight of 56 pounds per bushel for the Certified class of wheat seed.  There will still be no minimum test weight for the Foundation or Registered classes. Any sample of wheat submitted for laboratory analysis and found to contain rye and/or triticale in any amount will be rejected for certification and no re-cleaning and re-testing will be permitted.

8/11/17 IMPORTANT UPDATE: There seems to be a little confusion on adding test weight to the certification labels. This is NOT a state
law and therefore does not have to be listed on the tag. It is a new requirement effective this year that was submitted to the OCIA Board
by the Small Grains Committee at the annual meeting in February that the CERTIFIED CLASS OF WHEAT SEED must meet the
56 lb/bu test weight. Again, this is NOT mandatory that you list test weight on the tag but can if you so desire.  If you have any questions, contact the OCIA office.
