Build On a Foundation of Success
Quality seed is the foundation of quality crops and food. That’s why farmers and end-users across Canada and around the globe rely on Canadian Certified seed. It’s the highest quality, most consistent and identity-assured seed available, delivering predictable, third-party quality assurance from farm to fork.
When you start with Canadian Certified seed, you’re building on a foundation of success. Certified seed is grown under a robust quality assurance program managed by the Canadian Seed Growers’ Association (CSGA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) that follows strict federally regulated requirements that include standards for germination, mechanical impurities (like weeds and other crops) and, most importantly, varietal identity and purity.
The CFIA oversees the entire seed certification system, and if all criteria are met, the seed is eligible for the official Government of Canada’s Blue Certified Seed Tag. This reassures farmers of their seed purchase value and ensures that all Canadian producers of forage, grain, oilseed or pulse crops start with the best seed.
