Rejection of Seeds Plots


The agency has the authority to reject seed plots offered for certification when –

    • the isolation distance is inadequate.
    • the seed crop does not conform to the prescribed field standards for any factor or contaminant.
    • one-third or more of a self-pollinated crop is so heavily lodged as to render it impossible to take the field counts.
    • one third or more is lodged just prior to or during flowering so that inspection during flowering is difficult/ not possible.
    • The application in Form-1 is submitted after flowering stage of the crop.
