Purpose of crop and technology research

  • Canada’s grain quality assurance system is based on scientific research carried out in the Grain Research Laboratory.
  • Crop research programs scientifically assess the quality of Canadian grain harvests. They study how grading factors affect end-use qualities. They research new uses for Canadian grain. They assess new varieties as part of the variety registration process.
  • Technology research programs study and develop technologies and methods used to assess the quality and safety of Canadian grain.
