Generation numbers increase with years of production from the original seed source. Foundation class seed shall be downgraded automatically one generation each year. The generation year for foundation class seed shall be printed on tags by the certifying agency. When disease tolerances for a seed class or generation are exceeded, seed lots shall be lowered to the next acceptable seed classification or be rejected for certification. The term Uihlein will be used to further designate the first three generations of foundation seed originating from the Uihlein Farm of Cornell University.
(b) Foundation-Uihlein Generation 1.

(2) Grower shall enter entire potato acreage for certification as foundation and/or certified seed.

Seed lots shall originate from in vitro culture in which all plantlets have tested free from potato viruses A, M, S, X, Y (all may cause the mosaic disease) and leafroll; potato spindle tuber viroid; Corynebacterium sepedonicum (causes the ring rot disease); and Erwinia carotovora (causes the soft rot and black leg diseases). Propagation of lots from the Uihlein Farm of Cornell University or equivalent sources will be limited to six years with a Generation 5 (G5) lot originating from outside New York State being the last generation eligible for planting. A three-year exemption will be permitted at the discretion of the certifying agency for numbered selections from breeding programs or for named varieties for which pathogen-tested seed lots do not exist or are not available.
