WINNIPEG, Man. — The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) is taking a closer look at Canada’s grain handling and quality assurance system.
Currently, various types and classes of grain are kept separate through the handling system solely through visual identification. However, since an increasing number of grains are becoming visually indistinguishable, the CGC is looking at new ways to segregate grain.
Possibilities being considered include written declarations and sampling, which would be supported by variety testing. The idea is to enhance the quality assurance system and give producers more choice in what they grow and sell.
Grain handlers could be affected by the changes and are being offered the chance to weigh in on the changes. For more information or to find out how to provide input, visit the following Web site: http://grainscanada.gc.ca/Pubs/discussions/ved/introduction-e.htm.
