The applicable subheading for "Alfalfa Concentrated Powder" will be 1214.10.0015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for rutabagas (swedes), mangolds, fodder roots, hay, alfalfa (lucerne), clover, sainfoin, forage kale, lupines, vetches and similar forage products, whether or not in the form of pellets, alfalfa (lucerne) meal and pellets, dehydrated, other. The general rate of duty will be 1.9 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 CFR 177).
