All registered varieties of western Canadian wheat belong to a specific class. Varieties and classes are recorded in the Canadian Grain Commission’s variety designation lists. If your wheat is not on a list, it will be graded at the elevator as feed wheat or the lowest grade of amber durum.
Each year, you are required to sign a Declaration of Eligibility for the Class form at each licensed facility where you deliver. When you sign the form, you are declaring that your wheat qualifies for a particular class.
Remember, it is your responsibility to know which class your variety of wheat is eligible for.
If you are not sure which variety you are seeding, have it tested at a private lab.
Check the variety designation lists.
