Saskatchewan Seed Growers’ Association

Formed in 1928, Saskatchewan Seed Growers’ Association (SSGA) is an incorporated, non-profit organization, representing the interests of approximately 500 pedigreed seed growers in Saskatchewan. 

The SSGA is dedicated to the improvement of pedigreed seed production and its use by commercial producers.

In 2020, Saskatchewan pedigreed seed growers produced approximately 345,000 acres of pedigreed seed in over 25 different crop kinds.

Saskatchewan’s pedigreed seed industry is worth an estimated $790 million to the province’s economy and is the foundation of an $11 billion provincial crop industry.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2021 HONORARY LIFE MEMBER – MITCHELL JAPP

Mitchell has been an active and very engaged advisor to both the Saskatchewan Seed Growers’ Association and the CSGA. He shared his view, analysis, and observations on issues that resonated with the Boards, helping to shape policies and initiatives. His roles, such Chair of the Prairie Grain Development Committee and coordinator of the regional variety trials, as well as being a strong liaison between the Saskatchewan commodity commissions and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, allowed him to bring to our Board tables different perspectives on many issues. And, his mastery of governance was proven many a time!
