Canada's seed industry is getting a boost to its efforts to promote trade and reduce non-tariff trade barriers thanks to an investment by the Government of Canada. Today, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced an investment of more than $100,000 for the Canadian Seed Trade Association at the organization's semi-annual meeting.

"The Government's top priority remains the economy," said Minister Ritz. "Canada's seed and grain industry plays an important role in creating jobs, increasing trade and keeping our economy strong."
