Members of CropLife Canada have released the initial Designated Seed Treatment Product Listing.

The product listing is a component of the Accredited Seed Treatment Operation Standards implementation. CropLife Canada members have identified the product listing as seed treatment products that are to be used exclusively in commercial seed treatment operations that have successfully completed the Accredited Seed Treatment Operation Standards audit.

Effective Jan. 1, 2018, only seed treatment operations that have successfully completed an audit will be able to receive shipments of designated seed treatment products from distributors or agri-retailers.

CropLife Canada developed the Accredited Seed Treatment Operation Standards with industry and government stakeholders in order to safeguard the industry and help minimize the environmental, health and safety risks of the storage and application of seed treatment products at commercial seed treatment facilities in Canada.

The standards were initially released in 2014 and re-issued in 2016.
