Soybean Inspection

The season for soybean field inspection will be here soon. We remind growers who have not yet submitted their field inspection applications to get them in as soon as possible. This will allow field inspectors to plan for an efficient and timely inspection season.

Labeling Certified Forage and Mulch

A reminder to forage and mulch producers: Bales are not certified until a certification label is securely at­tached to each bale prior to delivery to the buyer. Misuse of certification tags may result in loss of certification privileges.
