New crop year reminders for western producers

The Canadian Grain Commission reminds the grain industry and producers about grain grading changes that come into effect on August 1, 2016 in Western Canada:

  • Primary and export grade determinant tables for the new Canada Northern Hard Red and Canada Western Special Purpose wheat classes take effect.
  • Canada Western Feed, Canada Western General Purpose and Canada Western Interim wheat classes will be eliminated.
  • Poor colour has been added to the definition for degree of soundness for Oats, No. 4 Canada Western.
The Official Grain Grading Guide, including the new primary grade determinant tables, will be posted on the Canadian Grain Commission's website on July 29, 2016 and will come into effect August 1, 2016.
