Wheat Growers propose new wheat classification system

The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association is proposing a new wheat classification model it claims will give prairie farmers greater and faster access to new wheat varieties. The new model, patterned after the wheat classification system implemented in Australia in 2011, would “preserve the very best of today’s wheat class system, and yet give seed developers greater opportunity to bring new wheat varieties to market,” the Wheat Growers said in a press release last week. via Leader-Post – Business http://www.leaderpost.com/business/agriculture/Wheat+Growers+propose+wheat+classification+system/8178959/story.html
