In order to purchase Foundation or Registered seed or sell Registered seed for an OGI-licensed variety, you must be a member of Oklahoma Genetics, Inc. (Purchasing or selling Certified seed does not require OGI membership.)
If you answered "Yes," there are two types of memberships available:
Annual Variety Fee - Whether you are a Full or a Provisional Member, there is an annual $50 variety fee, which is due each year for any variety you are handling during the year. (This includes purchasing seed, planting, harvesting and selling seed.)
Full Membership - (1) You must have produced (not merely planted) a class of Certified seed (of any variety) within the last three years in Oklahoma or another state. (2) You must have "eligible ground" (Regarding wheat, for example: "Eligible ground" means EITHER the ground was free and clear of any wheat crop the prior year OR it was planted in at least the Certified class of the same variety you wish to plant.) (3) You must have followed through with the respective state's certification agency (in Oklahoma, for example, it would be the Oklahoma Crop Improvement Association).
Applicants who do not qualify for Full Membership would be eligible for:
Provisional Membership - Because you are only able to purchase Registered or Certified seed, this will give you an opportunity to establish yourself with "eligible ground" and proceed to Full Membership the following year.
(You will also need to provide a copy of your state seed license)
