Excerpt from Results of Seed Tests for 1954: Made for the State Department of Agriculture

The first part of the report deals with 161 samples of agricultural seed tested for purity, germination and noxious weed content. There is a tolerance or allowable variation from the guarantee for both purity and germination, in accordance with the Rules for Seed Testing adopted by the Association of Official Seed Analysts, so that, for instance a sample of timothy guaranteed for purity and 85% for germination could test as low as for purity and 77 for germination and be satis factory. If a sample when tested for purity falls within the allowable variation, it is marked S (satisfactory) if below the allowable varia tion, and therefore a violation, the actual figure found for purity is given. The same is true for germination in the case of agricultural seeds.

The second part of the report applies to' 534 samples of vegetable seeds which were tested for germination only. The New Hampshire seed law requires that unless each packet or other container is plainly marked Below Standard together with the percentage of germination, vegetable seeds must test up to the prescribed standard for that kind of seed, and that there is no tolerance from the adopted standards. In the column headed Found if the same was up to standard, an S (satis factory) appears. The exception to this is in the case of a given sample being marked with a guarantee, which is not required if vegetable seed is up to standard: then, if the seed is found to be below the regular tolerance from that guaranteed figure, the figure found upon test fol lowed by i' is listed as mislabeled even though it might in some cases be up to standard.

The New Hampshire seed law and the rules and regulations there under, including the germination standards for vegetable seed, follow.
