2017 ORS 633.733¹
Legislative findings regarding seed regulation

(1) As used in this section, “nursery seed” means any propagant of nursery stock as defined in ORS 571.005 (Definitions for ORS 571.005 to 571.230).

(2) The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:

(a) The production and use of agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed and products of agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed are of substantial economic benefit to this state;

(b) The economic benefits resulting from agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed and seed product industries in this state make the protection, preservation and promotion of those industries a matter of statewide interest that warrants reserving exclusive regulatory power over agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed and products of agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed to the state; and

(c) The agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed and seed product industries in this state will be adversely affected if those industries are subject to a patchwork of local regulations. [2013 s.s. c.4 §2]
