These procedures are intended to assist CFIA inspectors in the inspection of the growing crops of seed potatoes to determine whether they meet the standards outlined in the Seeds Regulations Part II and in Appendix 8. The main objectives of conducting crop inspections are to:

  • Determine the farm unit production eligibility for crop inspection through review of the Application for Seed Potato Crop Inspection Growers' Declaration (CFIA/ACIA 1317) and confirmation of the grower's declaration.
  • Assess and record the disease level, varietal purity, crop rotation, cultivation, separation and overall health of a seed potato crop.
  • Determine seed status eligibility of the inspected crop and if appropriate, assign a seed class and a crop unique certification number.
