Retailer Agreement

There are two types of agreements used for the commercial movement of midge tolerant wheat seed:

  1. Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Agreement – used when you sell to retailers
  2. Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Agreement – used when you sell to farmer customers

Before anyone can be a midge tolerant wheat retailer they must complete the online midge tolerant wheat Retailer Training to receive their Midge Tolerant Wheat Authorized Retailer Number. This unique retailer number will be assigned when you successfully pass the Retailer Training.

If you plan to wholesale midge tolerant wheat seed you must have the retail company or individual who plans to sell the seed sign a Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Agreement (remember they must have a Midge Tolerant Wheat Authorized Retailer Number as described above). In effect this agreement states that they (the retailer) will assume responsibility to have the farmer customer sign the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Agreement and report that customer’s sales volume.

Examples of when the Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Agreement must be signed:

  1. A seed producer grows a midge tolerant wheat variety and wishes to sell wholesale Certified seed to another member of another company. Both parties must sign a Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Agreement. The retailer is responsible for recording volume sold on the MTWSA.ca website.
  2. If seed is sold to a farmer customer, the farmer customer must sign a Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Agreement with their retailer on MTWSA.ca. 
  3. A seed producer wishes to sell direct to a farmer customer. This process is exactly the same as a retailer selling to a farmer customer.
