Fall wheat seed availability questioned before harvest
Dr. Calvin Trostle, AgriLife Extension agronomist in Lubbock, said as producers scramble around for seed, those who are fortunate to harvest some need to remember the Plant Variety Protection Act.
“Most of these varieties are protected and you have to have permission to do anything other than collecting and cleaning what you can use in your own farming operation,” Trostle warned. “You can’t sell a protected variety to a neighbor as seed.”
Texas Foundation Seed Service is part of AgriLife Research. For more information on the Plant Variety Protection Act and what can and cannot be done with harvested seed, producers should access AgriLife Extension’s “The Plant Variety Protection Act: Information for Texas Small Grains Producers” (E-338), available at http://agrilifebookstore.org.
