These disease tolerances may apply to PVX-tested, stem-cut, meristem, line-select and non-PVX tested classes. "0.0" tolerance: The 0.0% tolerance is not intended, nor may it be construed to mean that the lot inspected is free from the disease. In cases of bacterial ring rot and Columbia root knot nematode, it means only that said disease was not identified during the visual inspection process. In cases of other disease, it means only that the diseased plants observed were required to be rogued out.
