New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Sampling and Analyzing
1. It shall be the duty of the commissioner or his or her duly authorized agent to sample each different brand of agricultural liming material distributed within the state, to such an extent as he or she may deem necessary to determine compliance with the provisions of this article. A sample to be designated official shall be one taken in the presence of the supplier or a person responsible to the supplier. Such sample shall, in the presence of the witness, be divided into two representative samples, each sealed, and one of such sealed samples shall be tendered, and if accepted, delivered to the witness; the other sealed sample the commissioner shall analyze or cause to be analyzed.
2. The results of the analysis of each official sample shall be promptly reported by the commissioner to the registrant. In the event an official sample shall analyze below the guarantee, the registrant may within twenty days submit evidence that the sample was non-representative or erroneous. If no satisfactory evidence is so submitted the report of analysis shall become official.
3. The commissioner shall publish or cause to be published at least annually the results of all analyses indicating the information required to be shown on labels and statements pursuant to section one hundred forty-two-cc of this article and such other information as the commissioner shall deem advisable.
