Grading System – U.S. Restrictions on Varieties of Wheat

Does the U.S. system restrict the varieties of wheat that U.S. producers can grow?

No. The U.S. does not have official variety control and farmers are free to grow any variety of wheat, including Canadian varieties, and deliver them into the grain handling system.  Some commercial marketing programs in the U.S. do require variety control.
