Clean, consistent, quality cereals that are responsibly farmed in Canada.
Canada Western Red Spring (CWRS) is our most widely grown wheat class that is known for having high protein with well balanced gluten strength. We continue to add new varieties to the Canada Prairie Spring Red (CPSR) class that have excellent flour yields. Canada Western Red Winter (CWRW) is another wheat class that offers very good quality as a medium protein wheat.
OUR 2021 WHEAT CROP
A challenging growing season produced a quality 2021 crop.
Canada Western Amber Durum (CWAD) is recognized for its high protein content, good gluten quality and high semolina yield. The high quality and large production of Canada Western Amber Durum (CWAD) makes Canada the leading exporter of durum wheat in the world. Products made from semolina milled from CWAD—like high-quality pasta, couscous and bread—are characterized by a bright yellow appearance that’s desired by consumers.
As the largest exporter of high-quality oats in the world, Canada produces about 3 million tonnes every year. Canadian oats supply three primary markets: milling oats for human consumption; performance or pony oats, largely for high-end race or competitive horses; and high-yielding feed oat varieties.
While the largest use of barley is for animal feed, it is also increasingly being used for human consumption—as malt for beer and in soup, cereal and snack products. Nearly 23,000 farmers produce roughly eight million tonnes yearly; making Canada the fourth largest barley producer and the second largest malt exporter in the world.
Canada is setting the standard for modern farming practices
Clean, consistent and quality
Through modern farming practices, Canadian farmers can grow strong wheat varieties, use good farm management practices from planting to harvest and on-farm storage. Canada has a natural advantage when it comes to land, water and climate. Through strong science-based regulation from the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC), it sets the high standards for clean, consistent quality grains.
Across the country, agriculture continues to make advancements in farming practices and crop production. Led by Cereals Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the National Wheat Research priorities have been developed. Through a unique national collaboration of farmers, federal and provincial governments, public research institutions, exporters and processors, this partnership between public and private sectors are committed to delivering innovation in the wheat sector.
Current farm management practices continue to provide a better and healthier farming environment than previous generations. Modern practices like conservation tillage (minimum or zero tillage) helps to capture or sequester carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere to slow or reverse atmospheric CO2 pollution to mitigate and reverse global warming keeping sustainability at the forefront of farming.
I spoke with breeders and I met farmers, and asked them about quality. Frankly, I understood that for the farmer, the breeder, for all of the active persons active on Canadian durum grain, quality is not just a sentence, it's a reality”
