The check-off or levy collection is collected in the same manner as all other producer check-offs, at first point of sale. All grades and crops listed are eligible to the check- off. Seed buyers, who are often the processors as well, are responsible to check-off the appropriate levy, and submit the funds to the Commission. Seed buyers of Saskatchewan produced seed have all the appropriate information with regards to registration and submission requirements. If producers market their own processed production to other producers, or market outside of Canada, it is their responsibility to submit the levy on their production.

The levy is 3/4 of 1 % of sale value ($0.75 per $100.00). This is a refundable check-off, so producers who feel there is no value in producer directed research can contact the SFSDC office to request a refund application.
