We guarantee that the seeds we sell conform to the label description, as reqired by State and Federal Seed Laws, within recognized tolerances. We make no other guarantees, express or implied, of merchantability, fitness for purpose, or otherwise, of the seed or of the crops grown from the seed, other than germination. Our liability for the breach of this guarantee, whether contractual, for negligence, or for any other reason, is limited to either a credit letter for the purchase price or replacement of such seeds, either act of which shall constitute full and complete adjustment and release. As a condition to any liability on our part, we must receive notice of any claim for defective seeds by registered mail within 30 days after the defect becomes apparent. Several states require arbitration or mediation before maintaining a legal action based upon failure of the seed sold to produce as represented. You must file a complaint (sworn if applicable), with any applicable filing fees, with the State Commissioner/Director/Secretary of Agriculture within such time as to permit inspection of the crop by us and any designated agency. If this guarantee is not acceptable, then the seeds must be returned at once in the original, unopened container, and the purchase price will be refunded in full.

NOTE: Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will REPLACE the seed or ISSUE A CREDIT VOUCHER, one time. We guarantee that the seeds we sell conform to the label; however, our liability is limited to the purchase price of the seed.

Typographical Errors-Although every precaution is taken to ensure accuracy, errors in price, quantity and/or specifications may occur. We reserve the right to correct such errors.
