Colorado Seed Potato Act

Legislative Declaration: The General Assembly hereby finds and declares that the purpose of the article is to control and minimize the spread of contagious community diseases by reducing the overall inoculum pool present in potato crops. This article is further intended to comply with the seed potato standards set forth in the state national harmonization program.

The Colorado Seed Potato Act regulates the distribution and planting of seed potatoes. All seed potatoes distributed by any person in lots that are sufficient to plant one or more acres in Colorado must be cerfified. You can discover how to obtain a copy of the Seed Potato Act here.
