Concerning the planting of uncertified potatoes, and, in connection therewith, requiring that uncertified potato seed stock be tested and approved by the certifying authority of Colorado before planting.
2024 Regular Session
Bill Summary

The act requires that, in order to plant uncertified potatoes, a potato grower must:

  • Submit the uncertified potato seed stock to the certifying authority of Colorado for testing and have the certifying authority approve the potatoes for planting; or
  • Ensure the uncertified potatoes are no more than one generation removed from certified or qualified parent potatoes and submit the uncertified potato seed stock to the certifying authority for testing.

The testing process is aimed to ensure that if uncertified potatoes are planted in Colorado, those potatoes are free from disease or other issues that may be detrimental to Colorado's potato crop.
