The Canadian Seed Growers’ Association (CSGA) is running a survey to gather information for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) modernization of the Seeds Regulations, the group says in a release on May 4.

To ensure seed growers’ views are represented in these consultations the CSGA is seeking input and feed back on some of the key questions which may emerge as the Seed Regulatory Modernization (SRM) Working Group starts, the release says. This questionnaire is the first in a series to ensure seed growers views are heard throughout the SRM process.

The end goal is to have a seed certification system which adds maximum value, contributes to the well-being of the system and its stakeholders and is as cost effective as possible, the release says.

The CSGA is asking for surveys to be completed by the end of May. However, due to it being seeding time currently, the survey will remain open until the end of June.
