This is a comprehensive list of all submitted seed lots, except G1 lots, passing Post Harvest Test tagging tolerances of combined 10% total virus as specified in Colorado Rules and Regulations for Certification of Seed Potatoes. This also meets the tagging tolerance specified in the Colorado Seed Act. If you purchased a seed lot prior to PHT results and it is not listed here, contact your seed supplier for results.
This document is a listing of certified seed lots that are eligible for sale to the commercial industry. Be advised that the readings are an estimate only. Yield losses due to actual disease content may vary by variety and management practices. Please call the Colorado Potato Certification Service with any further questions.
