Grain Research Laboratory

The Canadian Grain Commission’s Grain Research Laboratory supports Canada’s reputation as a consistent and reliable supplier of quality grain. Our research programs assess Canadian grain harvest quality and study how grading factors affect end-use properties. We evaluate and develop methods used to assess the quality and safety of Canadian grain. We also develop new uses for Canadian grain and evaluate new varieties as part of the variety registration program.
