Grain Research Laboratory

The Canadian Grain Commission’s Grain Research Laboratory works to establish and maintain standards of quality for Canadian grain by:

  • being the pre-eminent provider of science to support Canada’s grain quality assurance system
  • enhancing the marketability of Canadian grains through scientific research, monitoring and analytical services
  • anticipating and responding to the needs of the grain value chain through interaction with the grain sector and global grain science community

Areas of Research

The Canada Grain Act requires the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) to undertake, sponsor and promote research in relation to grains and grain products including:

  • assessing, improving and developing scientific procedures and technologies used in grain quality and safety determination
  • assessing Canadian grain harvest quality and studying how grading factors affect end-use properties.
  • developing new uses for Canadian grain and evaluates new varieties as part of the variety registration process.
