Through third party inspections and audits of seed growers, and processors across the country, the Canadian Seed Growers' Association certifies some of the highest quality seed in the world using a Quality Assurance (QA) Identity Preserved (IP) system that is world renowned.
The CSGA is the sole seed pedigreeing agency for most agricultural crops in Canada. Canada's seed system is recognized and respected around the globe because it ensures mechanical purity, while providing an audit trail that guarantees varietal identity and purity. It's a system that has given Canada its worldwide reputation as a supplier of quality agricultural products.
All sectors of the agricultural industry are moving toward a value chain model - a model based on quality assurances. It means establishing clear lines of production from raw product to end-user so customers know what they're buying and, when necessary, have assurance the product was grown to their specifications.
Canada's seed growers are committed to Canada's seed system, its standards and methods of producing clean, true-to-type, high-quality seed.
