The Manitoba Forage Seed Association was formed in 1991 through an amalgamation of the former Manitoba Forage Seed Producers’ Association and the Manitoba Alfalfa Seed Producers’ Association. It is an incorporated, not for profit, producer organization.
The association consists of nine member directors who are all forage seed producers as well as technical representatives from Manitoba Agriculture and the Seed Trade and has approximately 500 members.
The goal of MFSA is to build a stronger forage/turf seed production industry across Western Canada through industry cooperation and coordination of efforts through open communication.
The MFSA works hard at researching solutions to production problems in the industry and communicating that information to forage seed producers.
Efforts are also directed towards lobbying on behalf of forage seed producers in areas of concern such as Safety Net Programs, Policy Development and Current Business of the day.
