A. Definitions:

1. Prohibited Noxious:
The species is not yet present in Canada, or is present and is under official control as it has not yet reached its full ecological range. Official control is used to prevent further spread of the species and with the goal of eradicating the species. The species must be a weed whose presence in seed could affect the value and/or intended use of the seed lot; and/or could have potential impact on the economy, human health and/or animal health. This determination would be based on a Pest Risk Assessment type process. The species must have identifiable seeds that can be visually distinguished from those of other species, or in rare instances, from entire genera.

2. Primary Noxious:
The species is present in Canada and has not reached its full ecological range. The species must be a weed whose presence in seed could affect the value and/or intended use of that seed lot; and/or could have a potential impact on the economy, human health or animal health. This determination would be based on a Pest Risk Assessment type process, when deemed to be necessary. The species must have identifiable seeds that can be visually distinguished from those of other species, or in rare instances, from entire genera.

3. Secondary Noxious:
The species is relatively common and widespread in Canada. The species must be a weed whose presence in seed could affect the value and/or intended use of the seed lot. The species must have identifiable seeds that can be visually distinguished from those of other species, or in rare instances, from entire genera.

  1. Currently Primary Noxious does not apply to Grade Table XIV (Lawn or turf mixtures of two or more kinds of seeds) or Grade Table XV (Ground cover mixtures composed of seed of two or more kinds other than cereal mixtures, forage mixtures, and lawn or turf mixtures).

    Should Primary Noxious apply to Grade Table XIV (Lawn or turf mixtures of two or more kinds of seeds) of Schedule I?
