Wheat varieties change class as of Aug. 1 – The Western Producer
Snippet from The Western Producer:
Four winter wheat varieties developed at the University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre in Saskatoon will soon have their wings clipped.
CDC Kestrel, CDC Harrier, CDC Raptor and CDC Clair will be reclassified from the Canada Western Red Winter (CWRW) wheat class to the Canada Western General Purpose (CWGP) class as of Aug. 1.
The CWGP class generally consists of wheat varieties that are used for animal feed or ethanol production, rather than milling.
A fifth CWRW variety, CDC Falcon, is proposed to move to the CWGP class Aug. 1, 2014.
