2016 ASGA Board of Directors (missing: Richard Stamp)

2016 ASG Board of Directors (missing: Richard Stamp & Rob Graf)

The Alberta Branch is one of seven branches of the Canadian Seed Growers’ Association (CSGA). Each branch has its own board that works at a provincial level but also has representation at the national level to represent the opinions of the provincial membership.

Through third-party inspections and audits of seed growers, and processors across the country, the CSGA certifies some of the highest quality seed in the world using a Quality Assurance Identity Preserved system that is world-renowned.

The CSGA is the sole seed pedigree 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.

Alberta’s seed growers work hard to maintain the standards and methods of producing clean, true-to-type, high-quality seed.
