Janelle O Revised Uniform State Seed Law
The American Association for Seed Control Officials (AASCO) is a national membership organization comprised of state seed regulatory officials. Among other activities, AASCO developed and maintains the Revised Uniform State Seed Law, the model law that many states’ seed laws are based on. 
 
SECTION 2. Label requirements for agricultural, vegetable, and flower seeds. 
"Each container of agricultural, vegetable, and flower seeds which is sold, offered for sale, or exposed for sale, 
or transported within this State for sowing purposes shall bear thereon or have attached thereto in a conspicuous place a plainly written or printed label or tag in the English language, giving the following information, which statement 
shall not be modified or denied in the labeling or on another label attached to the container [...]"
 
 
SECTION 3. Prohibition. 
"(a) It is unlawful for any person to sell, offer for sale, expose for sale, or transport for sale any agricultural, 
 vegetable, flower or tree and shrub seeds within this State – [...].
 
COMMENTS:
The uniform law does not refer to barter, trade, supply, or exchange of seeds. Language refers only to selling and transporting of seed.
