Products must meet label requirements intended to provide consumers with important information about the analysis, ingredients and intended uses of the product. The Division samples and tests products to assure compliance with label guarantees.

The law requires seed packages to be labeled with information relative to germination and purity percentages. A list of weed seed species that are designated as either restricted or prohibited is established under the administrative rules of the program. Samples of seed are collected in the marketplace and tested for conformance with label guarantees.
