The BC Peace River Forage Seed Levy was established July 1 2004, applied to sales of forage and turf seeds at a rate of 0.75% of the gross amount payable to the producer.
The Forage Seed Levy is deducted from the sales proceeds payable to the grower by the forage seed buyer, or “first receiver”. Growers have the option of requesting a refund of all or part of their forage seed levy paid the prior calendar year, during the month of January.
