The Canadian Grain
Commission will deregister two Canada Prairie Spring White Wheat varieties effective April 28, 2011. Until that date, deliveries of the varieties Snowhite 475 and Snowhite 476 are eligible for the top grade in the CPSW class. But deliveries after that date will be categorized as feed.
“Western wheat producers must know their seed and grow registered varieties if they want to obtain a top grade for their wheat deliveries,” said Chief Commissioner Elwin Hermanson in a release.
“Wheat producers are also required to sign a declaration form at each licensed facility where they deliver, each year. By signing it, they declare that their wheat qualifies for a particular class,” Hermanson said.
To find out if their wheat varieties are listed, wheat producers can check the variety designation lists on the Canadian Grain Commission’s website: www.grainscanada.gc.ca.
