Samples; publication of results of tests
Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 9
§ 140. Samples; publication of results of tests. 1. The commissioner
or his or her duly authorized representatives shall take samples of
seeds for examination, analysis, and testing by the department. The
commissioner may contract with a qualified laboratory to perform such
examination, analysis, and testing. When the analysis of an official
sample indicates that seed is mislabeled, the results of such analysis
shall be provided to the person responsible for the labeling of the seed
and, upon that person's request, made within fifteen days of his or her
receipt of said results, the commissioner or his or her authorized agent
shall furnish such person with a portion of the sample taken.

2. From time to time the department of agriculture and markets, shall
make public the results of examinations, analyses, trials, and tests of
any sample or samples so procured, together with such additional
information as circumstances advise. These published results shall be
the property of the state of New York and shall not be used for
advertising or regulatory purposes by any person or agency, governmental
or otherwise without requested and granted permission of the
commissioner.
