SOLE SOURCE JUSTIFICATION:
A mandate of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), Lacombe Research and Development Centre is to develop integrated, sustainable crop systems and varieties for the short-season environments of Parkland and northwestern Canada. To fulfill this mandate, Field Pea Cultivars are developed to improve yield and disease resistance and then tested before they can be registered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and marketed to Canadian Pea Producers.
CFIA is the administrator for Crop Variety Registration and provides authority to regulate the quality, testing, inspection and sale of seeds in Canada under the Government of Canada Seeds Act and Seed Regulations. In order for a field pea cultivar to be registered by (CFIA), cultivars must:
Because CFIA is the agency responsible for crop registry under the Seeds Act, they have determined that only the University of Saskatchewan will be allowed to conduct these variety trials for the Pulse Crop Breeders. This is based on the crop production region where the variety is intended to be grown after commercialization and PRCPSC approval.
