Grading System – Canadian Restrictions on Varieties of Wheat

Does Canada’s system restrict the varieties of wheat that Canadian producers can grow?

No. Canadian producers are free to grow any variety of wheat, including U.S. varieties, and deliver them into the licensed grain handling system. However, only registered varieties grown in Canada are eligible for statutory grades other than feed or the lowest numerical grade in a given class (e.g. Feed Wheat or #5 Amber Durum).
