Don’t grow de-registered varieties

April 5, 2017 - Issue 4

Clearfield variety 46A76 has been de-registered by its registering company. Registration will be cancelled as of August 1, 2017, which means 46A76 crops harvested after that date cannot be legally delivered into the grain system in Canada. For this reason, growers should not grow 46A76 this year.

Growers with 46A76 currently in on-farm storage are encouraged to sell it before August 1.

Under the Seeds Act and Regulations, common seed of 46A76 is also considered a de-registered variety after that date.

These rules apply to any de-registered canola variety.
