Orders of the Canadian Grain Commission

Variety designation lists

Under the Canada Grain Act, the Canadian Grain Commission has the authority to designate the class of grain for which new grain varieties are eligible. The variety designation lists, maintained by the Canadian Grain Commission, for Canadian wheat, barley and flaxseed include all varieties eligible for each class.

The purpose of the Canadian Grain Commission's variety designation lists is to help producers and grain handlers identify which varieties are eligible for the top grades of each class. The Canadian grain industry uses the lists to keep ineligible varieties from undermining the quality of grain shipments and possibly causing problems for end users.

Variety designation orders by class of grade, includes order number and date issued or amended
