Canada: Peas and lentils no longer exempt from variety registration requirements
In previous years, the Canadian Grain Commission exempted peas and lentils from variety registration requirements to allow producers to take advantage of new varieties that were not yet registered.
The majority of the peas and lentils grown in Canada have now completed the variety registration process and exemption is no longer necessary.
All varieties of peas and lentils both registered and unregistered delivered on or before July 31, 2019, will be eligible for No. 1 Canada, the highest grade established by regulation.
Beginning August 1, 2019, unregistered varieties of peas and lentils will only be eligible for No. 3 Canada, the lowest grade established by regulation. ■
