The Federal Seed Act requires the coloring of all seed of alfalfa and red clover
imported into the United States. The following colors and proportional coloring
are set forth in the act, in the joint regulations under the act, and in notices
by the Secretary of Agriculture:

seed grown in Africa, 10 percent red;
seed grown in Turkistan (Turkestan), 10 percent purple red;
seed grown in South America, 10 percent orange red;
and red clover seed of unknown origin, 10 percent red;
and red clover seed of known origin, not specifically provi
percent green.


ded


It is necessary to color completely 1 or 10 percent of the seed, as required,
and mix this thoroughly with the uncolored seed. In the case of coloring 1
percent where facilities for bulking are lacking, the completely colored seed may
be introduced into the open bags by means of hollow tubes. This method is not
practicable when 10-percent coloring is required.


COMPLETE STAINING WITH WATER-SOLUBLE DYE
It is practicable to color seed completely, using either a concrete mixer or a
tarpaulin or waterproof sheet.
CONCRETE-MIXER METHOD
The seed is placed in an ordinary concrete mixer, the solution of water-soluble
dye is added, and the mixer is turned until the color is evenly distributed over
the seed. The seed is then put in a pile and left without stirring until it is dry.
Good results cannot be expected unless both the quantity of dye in the solution
and the quantity of solution are used in approximately the proportions recom-
mended.
WATERPROOF-SHEET METHOD
Practically the same results as with the concrete-mixer method mrav h obh-
