The WSCIA Foundation Seed Service accepts year-in-advance (YIA) agreements for most varieties. The YIA agreements are firm commitments to purchase seed at an agreed upon price. These agreements are offered so that you may reserve specific varieties for future planting. A per pound discount is also a benefit in signing a YIA agreement, offered on all varieties excepting those within two years of release.
In the case of newly released varieties, the YIA agreement document will look and read differently. This was necessary in order to conform to the WSU system of variety release, and the legal and technical aspects of Plant Variety Protection (PVP) law regarding the timing of sale of new varieties.
WSCIA reserves the right to charge a penalty or restocking fee up to the full amount of the purchase price if the available seed is not purchased under the YIA agreement. Non-YIA sales will be at the price in effect at the time of delivery.
