Acreage

Register for PEI Potato Acreage Program

Note: The registration deadline is June 30.

PQI administers the Provincial Potato Acreage Registration Program. Under current regulations, anyone growing more than 0.1 hectares of potatoes (0.25 acres) must register.

If you are not eligible or applying for CFIA seed potato crop inspection, register as a non-seed grower.

When you register you must provide:

  • total hectares planted for each field (convert acres to hectares)
  • the location of each field with clear written directions or a map
  • accurate seed source information

The following are two options of how to register your acreage:

OPTION 1:
Print and complete the Registration Form.
When completing the form, please list the hectares planted for each field and its location. Also, it is very important that accurate seed source information is provided on the Form. To convert acres to hectares, divide the acreage amount by the factor 2.4710, or multiply acres by the factor of 0.4047. Your field location MUST be included with a written description or a map to identify each field. The back of the Form may be used if more space is required.

OPTION 2:
Provide a copy of your completed Application for Seed Potato Crop Inspection (CFIA 1317) to PQI.
