Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBKIDGE HtRAlD July 17, 1972 causing great concern iidics causing great concern Common Market rules Svill affect9 Canada seed trade frp) _ The Euro- Later he explained that the The directives "can have far The common catalogue of va- A second directive deals with offer." tain species ol grasses i HALIFAX (CIJ) The Euro- pean Economic Council in re- cent months has adopted tlirco important directives on seed which could have far reaching effects on Canada's send trade with the Common Market mem- ber countries, the Canadian Seed Growers Association was told here. Robert G. Savage of the fed- eral agriculture department told delegates to Hie association's annual meeting that the latest of the directives, establishing production subsidies for basic and certified seed of certain species of grasses and legumes in the Common Market coun- tries, is causing great concern. Later he explained that the countries have been paying their farmers s u b s i d I c s for grain production and with the additional subsidies for the grasses iuid legumes species, "the subsidies are bound to have an effect." He said the EEC countries "aren't going to be able to pro- duce all but it was uncertain the effect it would have on Canadian ex- ports. He told the some 200 dele- gates that the directives con- cern a common catalogue of va- rieties, the quality and labelling of seed of forage crops and the market policy for seeds. The directives "can have far reaching effects on our seed trade with EEC member coun- tries." The first directive firmly re- quires that, effective July 1, 1972, each member country of the Common Market must es- tablish a restrictive list of cata- logue of varieties that can be marketed wiUiin that country. Some of the countries have had two restrictive lists. "The directive also specifies that a variety, in order to be listed in a national catalogue, must be tested and found to be distinct, stable, sufficiently uni- form and be proven to have a satisfactory degree of merit." The common catalogue of va- rietlcs will be set up witliin the Common Market, listing the va- rieties that each member state must allow to be sold within Its territory. Mr. Savage said: "11 means that if we are I going to sell seed of our varie- ties in the Common Market we must get them listed in at least one member country. "If then, our varieties get in- cluded in the common catalogue we would be able to sell them in any and all of the member countries. We have been work- ing towards this end for several years now in attempting to get some of our varieties listed in the various countries." A second directive deals with quality and labelling of seed, a requirement that no member stale can permit the Importa- tion or sale of non-pedigreed seed of certain varieties. "This means that all our ex- ports of commercial seed of these crops to EEC countries has ceased." Mr. Savage explained tliat the EEC countries "have become variety conscious. The govern- ments are trying to get their farmers better varieties." The European countries have traditionally been big importers of commercial seed, of which they are no more interested, and "they bought what we had to offer." He said it could lie a good Uiing for pedigreed seed grow- ers "if we can swing our pro- duction to pedigreed seeds. "It could be good In the long run. As the importation of com- mercial seeds fell, they haven't been filling in with pedigreed seeds." The change will bring about a decline in the over-all exports to the EEC countries, "but this can be brought up with pedi- greed seeds. It means getting our varieties on their lists and finding out their requirements." The third directive establish- ing production subsidies for basic and certified seed of cer- tain species of grasses and leg- umes consists of a flat rate pay- ment to producers for each quintal of basic and certified seed of the specified kinds which they produce. A quintal is 112 pounds. "While the slated purpose Is to provide a fair Income for their producers it is also in- tended to stimulate production witllin the EEC so that they do not have to rely on imports." The directive also makes- provision for the application of a compensatory lax to imports of hybrid corn when the import price of that corn is less than the reference price of hybrid corn within the community. Tip leads police to zoo NEW YORK (AP) An anon- ymous tip Monday led police to a battered Brooklyn stable seven miles from the Astroland nmi'semcnt park In Coney Is- land where the entire children'l zoo was stolen early Sunday. Detectives found the six Shet- land ponies, 11 sheep, 11 goats, a llama, a miniature wliite bull and a coop of chickens suffering from heat prostration. But only a South American tortoise was missing. Police arrested Toby Espos- ito, 19, on charges' of possession of stolen property and cruelly to animals, but they said his mo- tives remained unclear.
