(1) The director may place a quarantine on all agricultural, flower or vegetable seed entering this state from any outside source. However, seed labeled in accordance with ORS 633.520 (Labeling agricultural seed or bulk flower seed), 633.531 (Labeling vegetable or flower seed weighing one pound or less) and 633.541 (Labeling vegetable seed weighing more than one pound) shipped into the state by any person holding an Oregon license in full force shall not necessarily be quarantined; and any such seeds in tight containers in transit directly through this state, to points outside this state, are not subject to quarantine. Any such seeds from outside this state, that are destined to points in this state for conditioning purposes, for later use in this state, or for shipment from this state, shall be held under quarantine until such seeds comply with ORS 633.511 (Definitions for ORS 633.511 to 633.750) to 633.750 (Disposition of fees and charges paid under ORS 633.511 to 633.750).

(2) The director may draw necessary samples of such seed and hold such seed until the necessary tests are completed and arrangements for the disposition of the seed are consummated. If the seed is found to be in compliance with those sections it shall be immediately released. If the seed is found to be in violation of any part of those sections, the director shall so notify the shipper and, unless the director is instructed to return such seed within 30 days or unless such seed is put in condition to comply with the provisions of those sections and all costs covering such inspection and seizure are paid, the director shall cause the seed to be destroyed.
