You can confirm this by comparing the isolation distance(s) for the above crop(s), on your "Report of Seed Crop Inspection", with the isolation requirements in the CSGA's "Canadian Regulations and Procedures for Pedigreed Seed Production (Circular 6 and its amendments)". These Regulations (Circular 6) are available from the CSGA office by phone: (613) 236-0497, fax: (613) 563-7855 or from the Regulations section on CSGA's website at: www.seedgrowers.ca.

Isolation requirements must be "officially" verified for CSGA to certify seed crops.

When the required isolation is NOT present at the time of crop inspection, one of the following two options must be chosen. Both options involve a re-inspection that must be arranged directly with the local CFIA office or seed crop inspector recognized by the CSGA in order to verify the isolation corrective action(s).


  1. The isolation can be corrected and then verified "prior to harvest"; OR
  2. For crop kinds in Sections 2, 3 and 12 of Circular 6, an isolation perimeter strip of the required distance can be left standing in the seed crop and verified "after harvest". This is not an option for most cross-pollinated crop kinds such as canola and forage grasses and legumes.

Note: Re-inspection fees are paid directly to CFIA, by a cheque to the Receiver General for Canada, at the rate of $60.00 per hour including travel with a minimum charge of $90.00 per inspection visit and all fees are subject to GST. Re-inspections are subject to staff availability and completion of initial inspections of pedigreed seed crops.

For a re-inspection, please contact the following local inspector or office
