Pulse producers will see some changes in the way peas and lentils are graded starting in the new crop year August 1, 2019.
The Canadian Grain Commission release says all varieties of peas and lentils (both registered and unregistered) delivered on or before July 31, 2019, will be eligible for No. 1 Canada, the highest grade established by regulation.
Meantime, any deliveries of unregistered varieties of peas and lentils starting on August 1, 2019, will only be eligible for No. 3 Canada, the lowest grade established by regulation.
