Market Protection and Promotion

 

The Federal Seed Program prevents mislabeled seed from moving in interstate commerce by providing for random sampling of seeds to insure accurate labeling of seed characteristics. The Pesticide Data Program works with participating States to collect and analyze data on pesticide use and residue levels for selected commodities in the nation's food supply. This program provides statistically based data to Federal agencies for use in making policy decisions for regulatory and educational purposes.
