The Canadian Grain Commission is updating its Eastern wheat class structure.
Effective July 1, 2019, the Canada Eastern Other Wheat (CEOW) class will be created to provide a class for varieties with unique characteristics and allow producers to take advantage of special contracted varieties.
"The Canadian Grain Commission is committed to working with all stakeholders to support a marketing framework that maximizes returns for producers and the Canadian grain industry as a whole," said Chief Commissioner Patti Miller.
The following wheat classes will be removed to reduce the cost of grain segregation in the commercial handling system:
-Canada Eastern Red (CER)
-Canada Eastern Hard White Winter (CEHWW)
-Canada Eastern Soft White Spring (CESWS)
-Canada Eastern Hard White Spring (CEHWS)
Producers will still be able to grow the varieties assigned to these classes and deliver them under contract to the Canada Eastern Other Wheat (CEOW) class.
