I think the general rule is if it’s not illegal and it won’t grow in the form you have, it’s ok.

SAG asks for it to come with labels on it. Fine grounded yuca and maca look like cocaine powder, and you don't want SAG to mix things up. Yes, it will clear out once they test it, but it will waste a hilariously large amount of time, from personal experience.

sounds like pure trouble.

it would need to be sterile, so it is not containing any parasites, bugs, etc.

just play dumb, declare that you DO have agriculture products in SAG, put a little obvious vegetables or what ever in a easy to find spot and the maca powder(meat cheese ect ect) in a hard to find spot(you know your car...). they will just take away the easy to see products and let you on your way, and if not- you've still declared it so no problems, just try to look really nerdy and stupid... worked great for me crossing from argentina Bolivia Peru
