Welcome to Seed Corn Growers of Ontario
Our principal mandate is to work with the individual seed corn companies to negotiate production contracts that not only make our growers competitive, but also provide incentives to produce excellent seed. We work to ensure that our growers are provided with the most useful information and programs in order to maintain and broaden their seed corn production skills.
In Canada, Seed Corn is only produced in Southwestern Ontario; particularly Chatham-Kent and Norfolk counties. The SCGO represents over 200 growers within this area.
The SCGO have maintained above average yields of seed corn for over the last 15 years. We produce enough seed to keep 5 companies in operation and over 5,00 people employed.
The operation of the SCGO is primarily to achieve contractual obligations between the producers and the companies in order to create a viable business opportunity for both parties.
We help our growers to produce qualiy seed corn with a good return. The SCGO's role is to facilitate production contracts to create a competitive market for our seed corn companies.
