for those plants. Plants certified under this section shall be known as “state certified plants.”

inspections that the department considers necessary to provide clean slips for sale
or shipment. Application for certification of sweet potato plants shall be made prior to harvesting
time of the preceding season.
(c) The certificate tag or stamp shall be firmly affixed to each container or bundle
of plants at the point of origin for shipment of the plants.
