Seeding the Public Interest

NFU Campaign: Save Our SeedIt all starts with a seed …. But how do we know that the seed we plant will grow well and produce a good crop? Canada’s seed system was originally created to prevent unscrupulous dealers from selling low quality, dirty, or diseased seed to farmers. Over the decades Canada’s public interest seed system has created crops that thrive in our harsh climate.  These high quality crops command premium prices in international and domestic markets. Farmers, export customers, the food processing industry, and consumers all depend on the quality assurance the integrity of our public interest-based seed system provides. NFU seed expert Terry Boehm and Ken Larsen will share their knowledge about how the many parts of our seed system work together to deliver the seed we need.
