The deadline is approaching to apply for the Seed of the Year Award!

Seed of the Year is an initiative recognizing plant breeders. Through the program’s application process, breeders are encouraged to highlight their research accomplishments in developing a new variety of field crops, forages, fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Applications from across Canada will be considered. Nominations will remain on file for three years and be re-nominated automatically and reviewed for consideration as a Seed of the Year finalist.

Get your application in by Oct. 31, 2020. This year’s winner will be announced at the Canadian Seed Trade Association Virtual Semi-Annual Meeting in December.
