Three flaxseed varieties to be deregistered
By Canadian Grain Commission
The registration for the CDC Arras, Flanders and Somme flaxseed varieties will be cancelled effective Aug. 1, 2017. At that time, these varieties will be removed from the variety designation list for flaxseed and will only be eligible for the lowest grade.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency registers grain varieties and is also responsible for cancelling the registration of varieties. The Canadian Grain Commission designates which registered varieties are eligible for delivery into specific classes of grain.
