Part I: Instructional Codes used by CSGA
AHC: the inspector is asked to verify with the grower the after harvest cultivation practices used on the field in question and provide the information on the Report of Seed Crop Inspection.
ARE: the inspector is asked to provide information on the area of the crop in acres on the Report of Seed Crop Inspection.
CPC: the inspector is asked to verify with the grower the variety, kind and crop certificate numbers issued to cover the crops grown on this land for the last two years and provide this information on the Report of Seed Crop Inspection.
DESC: If the inspector was provided a description of variety by the applicant, the inspector is requested to provide this description to the CSGA with the Report of Seed Crop Inspection.
FPC, FP3, FP5, RP3, RP5, S3C: the previous land use has not been verified; the inspector is requested to obtain this information from the grower and provide it on the Report of Seed Crop Inspection. Where a number is indicated in the code, this is the number of years of previous land use for which CSGA is requesting information. For FPC, two years of previous land use information is requested.
GEN: The crop does not appear to be eligible for pedigreed seed crop certification. The inspector is requested to verify with the grower whether the inspection is for land use, re-certification or if the inspection is to be cancelled.
LOK: the previous land use has been accepted; no other verification is required.
PED: It appears that the Crop Certificate number of the seed used to plant this crop does not agree with CSGA records. The inspector is requested to send the tags representing the seed used to plant this crop to the CSGA.
TAG, TAGCC, TAGNE: the inspector is asked to attach a representative seed tag to the original copy of the Report of Seed Crop Inspection for forwarding to CSGA. In the case of TAGCC, the previously submitted tag did not contain a valid crop certificate number and a corrected tag is requested. In the case of TAGNE, the previously submitted tag was not issued by a seed certification agency.
YRS: The inspector is requested to contact the grower and provide CSGA with the month and year that the crop was planted.
0P: indicates that a grower is authorized to begin probationary period for plot production.
1P, 1Q: indicates that a grower has completed one year of probation plot production.
2P, 2Q: indicates that a grower has completed two years of probation plot production.
3P, 3Q: indicates a grower has completed his probation period but is not yet fully accredited as a plot producer.
