Tags Required for Seed in Tote Containers

MCIA now requires that seed being sold in tote containers must be labeled with a certification tag. Sellers can no longer use a bulk certificate when distrib­uting seed in tote containers.

Any seed class may be sold in tote containers using a certification tag as proof of certification. A tote typically weighs between 1,000 and 3,000 pounds. In cases where tote containers are unloaded into the buyer’s vehicle, the tags must be provided to the buyer.
