Harvest Season 2017


The Onion Seed Map in this office will  be available to post onion seed locations in Imperial County. Participation is voluntary. IVVGA has no legal authority over posted locations.

The purpose of this map is to allow seed companies and growers to review it for distance restrictions on pollination and varieties, and then communicate with each other as necessary. ONLY SEED COMPANIES will provide pin locations on the map. All pinning will be done by IVVGA staff.

1. Posting for the 2017 harvest is - Monday, July 13 to July 17, 2016. The location form will be accepted from seed companies at this time. Please note block location for gate, i.e., (N,S,E,W corner) along with crossroads . Growers need to give locations to seed companies prior to pinning date. Please deliver form by mail, email or drop by our office. No locations will be taken by phone.  If you choose to drop the form off, please call to be sure the o office is open for dates other than noted above.

 If you would like to pin a location after the pinning week (7/11 – 7/17/16), your pin must be within isolation requirements. If you are 3 miles near a pin already posted, you must contact pin’s Seed Rep to resolve any question of isolation before office will allow pin.

 Please honor and  respect pin locations already posted.

2. Seed companies are invited to meet on August 12, 2016 at 1:30 pm in the IVVGA office for last time and if grower’s pin is not valid, seed company will remove pin.

All isolation problems should be resolved at this point.

If you have any questions, please call this office, 760-353-1900 or Kay's cell, 760-482-8032.
