First In the Series - January 28, 2021 - 9:00 AM CST

SEED REGULATORY MODERNIZATION

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) plans to modernize the Seeds Regulations as they apply to seeds imported, conditioned, stored, tested, labelled, exported and sold in Canada. It is anticipated that the amendments would reduce overlap and redundancy, increase responsiveness to industry changes, address gaps, weaknesses and inconsistencies, and provide clarity and flexibility to affected regulated parties.

The current Seeds Regulations have been in place since 1905, and while there have been minor changes over the decades, a focused, industry wide review overseen by CFIA is long overdue. Join us on January 28 at 9:00 AM CST for a conversation with our guests as CFIA gets ready to launch their stakeholder survey.

* Wendy Jahn (National Manager, Seed Section CFIA, Co-Chair Seed Regulatory Modernization Working Group)
* Roy Van Wyk (CSI, Industry Co-Chair Seed Regulatory Modernization Working Group) and
* Mike Scheffel (CSGA Managing Director, Policy and Standards)

Saskatchewan Forage Seed Development Commission

Seed of forage crops have been harvested for a hundred years in Saskatchewan. Forage seed production has evolved to be a core business for some producers and global seed companies. Some crops are destined entirely for export markets, while others remain in Saskatchewan to be planted by livestock producers and conservation agencies.

The Saskatchewan Forage Seed Development Commission (SFSDC) was created as the producer-led organization to guide research and development needs of all forage, turf and amenity crops, with the exception of alfalfa. Alfalfa seed producers have had a separate Commission and production levy, the SASPDC, since 1997.

The SFSDC was established in June 2005 under The Agri-Food Act, following a feasibility study conducted in 2002-2003 and extensive consultation and communication with forage seed producers and buyers.
