Allocation of Risks and Exclusive Express Warranty:
Failure of seed to germinate and/or reduction of yield may occur as a result of multiple environmental and agronomic factors. Seeds at times carry seed borne diseases that may not be apparent to the Seller, Purchaser or User. Nunhems makes no representation that its seeds are free of seed borne diseases whether previously known to exist or not identified until this seed is grown. All risks of nonperformance, reduced performance and/or crop damage due to these factors shall be assumed by the Purchaser and User. This allocation of risks is reflected in the price of the seed. Product representations, including photographs, on Nunhems labels, packaging, advertising and technical publications, and web sites represent kind only.

Notice of Required Arbitration/Conciliation Mediation Required by Several States: Under the seed laws of several states, ARBITRATION, CONCILIATION or MEDIATION is required as a prerequisite to maintaining a legal action based upon the failure of seed to which this notice is attached to produce as represented. The consumer shall file a complaint (sworn for some states) along with the required filing fee (where applicable) with the Commissioner/Director/Secretary of Agriculture, Seed Commissioner, or Chief Agricultural Officer within such time as to permit inspection of the crops, plants or trees by the designated agency and the seedsman from whom the seed was purchased. A copy of the complaint shall be sent to the seller by certified or registered mail or as otherwise provided by statute. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE for specific requirements as to filing procedures, fees, scope of application, statutory period of limitations, etc., as soon as you learn of the facts upon which a claim is to be based before any legal action is initiated. Failure to follow this procedure could limit your legal rights or limit the amount of damages you may be able to recover, depending on the law of your state.
