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.
