East Lansing, Mich., May 5 A warning that seed of a very low grade is being1 ; shipped into Michigan by three or four mail order dealers in nearby states is being sent out by the State Seed Laboratory at East Lans ing. Complaints from all parts of the state indicate the sale of a large amount of this impure seed, much of which is in violation of the Michigan Seed Law. Clover and Timothy seeds are those with which most of the troubles being experienced. Mere than thirty kinds of weed seeds, on an average, have been found in samples tested by Miss Bertha Hol lister, State Seed Anaylyst. Noxious weeds, sucll as dodder and Canada thistle have been found freely in the samples, making the situation espec ially serious, ,Wilo the Michigan Seed law can handle violations of the law which occur withirf the state, it has no power to take action against firms i!oin business outside the state. t The remedy for the present situa tion is for the farmer, and the, small dealers of the state to , trade with Michigan dealers or with responsible firms outside the state. In every case where seed is purchased for sowing. the buyer should demand an analysis at the time of purchase or should send a sample to the State Seed Lab oratory, East Lansing, so that a test can be made to determine the weed content. , . and numerous other articles Ar housekeeping use.
