Seed Labeling Permit System
A Non-Resident Seed Dealer’s License is required if seed is sold to the consumer by direct sales, internet sales, or through an authorized agent. The name and address of each company-authorized agent must be included with the seed dealer’s license. If sales are only made through wholesale or retail businesses in North Dakota, only the seed labeling permit is required.
