Canada-U.S. Pea Agreement Finalized
Winnipeg-based Canterra Seeds and the University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre (CDC) are pleased to announce the finalization of their agreement for the exclusive rights to produce and distribute CDC pea varieties in the United States.
The pea varieties will be sold through Canterra Seeds’ U.S. affiliate Meridian Seeds.

Similar to Canterra Seeds, Meridian Seeds is a network of seed-grower shareholders and licensees. The US affiliate has doubled in size over the past three years and is represented in over 12 states.
“We are pleased indeed to have concluded this agreement with Canterra Seeds and Meridian Seeds, ensuring high-performing CDC pea varieties will continue to be marketed to US producers. We fully expect U.S. pea growers will continue to patronize CDC varieties, and are committed to reinvesting the resulting royalties into the development of even better pea varieties for growers,” said Kofi Agblor, Managing Director, Crop Development Centre.
