Change the requirement for testing of lawn seed.

The proposed rule changes will change the requirement for testing of lawn seed from every 12 months to every 15 months. The proposal would also require liquid feed manufactures to label the moisture content for feed that contains more than 20% moisture. Finally, the proposal repeals feed rules pertaining to the manufacture of ruminant livestock feed that are unnecessary. This proposal will allow for sale of viable seed for longer periods of time, provide more information for the consumer, and remove provisions no longer necessary.

New content is added below as the draft rules move through the rule-making process.
