For a meadow-grass is considered a percentage of 0.5% by weight of seeds of other Poa species shall not as an impurity and are not included in the inventory of the main content of seeds of other plant species in columns 4 and 5.







3)





The in column 5 for alm. tall oatgrass, engrævehale, alm. Gold oats percentage for a single species include not seeds of meadow grass.







4)





The percentage by weight of seeds of agerrævehale must not exceed 0.3.







5)





There shall not be found wild oats in the indicated weight quantity in column 8. For engrævehale, rescue grass, alaska Brome is considered a total content of not more than 2 seeds of wild oats not as an impurity where a second sample of the same weight is free from any seeds of wild oats.







6)





There shall not be found silk in the indicated weight quantity in column 8. However, it is considered 1 seeds of silk in the prescribed test not as an impurity where a second sample of the same size is free. Study of silk in timoté must only be carried out than other species, if there is doubt that the conditions are complied with.







7)





Species other than tuber rottehale and timoté should only be examined for the dock, if there is doubt that the norm in table 1 column 7 have been satisfied.
