113. The State Plant Protection Service, in conformity with the number of the received samples, shall develop a sowing plan. The sowing plan shall be created by observing the following principles:

113.1. varieties with similar morphological features shall be placed next to each other;

113.2. replications shall be arranged randomly in different areas of the field. Three replications shall be arranged to pre-basic (PB) and basic (B) category seed, two replications shall be arranged to first generation certified seed (C1), one replication shall be arranged to certified (C) and second generation certified seed (C2);

113.3. the distance among plants, rows and fields shall be such that it shall be possible to carry out morphological observations during the whole growth period;

113.4. if sowing of all fields does not take place concurrently, the sowing of the variety of the original seed sample shall be also repeated in each term of sowing so that the plants in fields might be compared at all growth stages;

113.5. fields shall have such size as to ensure an evaluation of at least 1000 plants in one field;

113.6. a 0.5 m large zone at the ends of fields shall not be evaluated.

114. Replanting and thinning of plants may not be carried out in field plots during vegetation.

115. For each field to be tested:

115.1. an accounting of the density of sowing fields shall be carried out at the plant stage of 2-3 leaves;

115.2. the identity of a variety shall be evaluated, comparing plants with the plants of the original variety seed field; and

115.3. all plants of other varieties and non-characteristic to the variety shall be determined and accounted, they shall be noted with markers.

116. Observations shall be carried out during the whole period of vegetation in accordance with the official descriptions of the variety. On carrying out the evaluation of fields, critical periods shall be observed when the presence of plants of other varieties and plants non-characteristic to the variety may be distinguished the most. During this period each field shall be inspected at least once a week.

117. The sample shall not be in conformity with the varietal purity requirements, if the number of the plants non-conforming with the variety, depending on the number of the evaluated plants for oats, barley, triticale and wheat in post-control exceeds the one indicated in Annex 23 to this Regulation, but to buckwheat and rye in post-control it exceeds the one specified in Annex 24 to this Regulation.

118. If in the post-control it is determined that any of the seed lots does not conform to the identity of the variety or with the varietal purity requirements, the State Plant Protection Service shall take a decision on further propagation possibilities of the seed lot. The State Plant Protection Service shall inform the seed grower, seed processor, packer or trader regarding the decision taken within seven working days.

119. [13 July 2010]

120. The results of seed lot post-control shall be available in an electronic form on the website of the State Plant Protection Service.

XII. Closing Provision

121. Cabinet Regulation No. 253 of 13 May 2003, Regulations on Growing and Marketing of Cereal Seed (Latvijas Vēstnesis, 2003, No. 73; 2004, No. 69; 2005, No. 33), is repealed.

122. Until 1 January 2013 the State Plant Protection Service shall issue a report "Seed Evaluation Results" in accordance with Annex 21 to this Regulation to a registered person instead of the label referred to in Paragraph 99.3 of this Regulation, if the germination power indicator of seed determined in the repeated inspection referred to in Paragraph 99.1 of this Regulation conforms to the requirements of the category determined previously.
