Frequently Asked Questions

What is a License and Stewardship Agreement (LSA)?
This is an agreement between Monsanto and a farmer granting the farmer rights to purchase and plant Roundup Ready canola seed. By signing the LSA farmers agree to comply with the license terms, the Roundup Ready canola Crop Management Plan (CMP), and all relevant regulatory requirements of the APVMA and the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR). They also agree to deliver grain from their Roundup Ready canola crop only to an authorized grain handler and to declare grain as Roundup Ready canola. Farmers can sign and return an LSA to Monsanto at any time. An LSA must be signed, received and accepted by Monsanto before a grower can take possession (delivery) of seed containing the Roundup Ready canola trait. By signing the LSA, farmers are not obligated to grow Roundup Ready canola and there are no costs incurred at this stage. Farmers can sign an LSA before attending an accreditation session, but must be accredited prior to taking delivery of Roundup Ready canola seed.
