CGC Deregisters Varieties – for Jul. 29, 2010

“ Know what you grow,” says Elwin Hermanson, chief commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission. “That’s what we’re asking Canadian grain producers to do. When you know that you’re growing registered grain varieties, you help maintain Canada’s reputation for marketing high-quality grain and you help preserve access to key international markets for your grain.”

“The Canadian Grain Commission is committed to helping you stay informed about variety deregistrations. As part of this, every August 1, we tell you which varieties will be deregistered. This gives you time to make seeding decisions that work for you,” Hermanson said.

The Canadian Grain Commission advises that the following wheat varieties belonging to the Canada Prairie Spring White (CPSW) class will be deregistered effective April 28, 2011:

Snowhite 475, Snowhite 476.

After April 28, 2011, these varieties will only be eligible for the grade Wheat, Canada Western Feed.
