General Seed Certification Standards Rules and Regulations
Harvesting of certified seed is subject to supervision of the local county agricultural commissioner, whose office must be notified prior to the harvest of certified seed (California Agricultural Code, Division 18, Chapter 2, California Seed Law, Article 7, Section 52421(b)).
All harvesting equipment and any conveyances used to handle the certified seed must be cleaned and verified by the county Agricultural Commissioner prior to harvest or use. The cleaning of harvesting equipment is the joint responsibility of the applicant and grower.
