Seed only registered varieties

Growers are reminded to make sure they seed registered varieties. Some older varieties that were once registered have been “deregistered” — meaning they are no longer approved in our export markets. More than 80% of Canada’s canola crop is exported around the world, so it is critical that our canola meets the requirements of our export customers. If de-registered varieties are detected, canola shipments could be turned away causing millions of dollars in losses and placing future business with that country at risk.
