The Prairie Recommending Committee for Wheat, Rye and Triticale (PRCWRT) evaluates candidate cultivars (varieties) of wheat, rye and triticale and, upon the request of the owner or designate, makes recommendations to the Variety Registration Office, Canadian Food Inspection Agency regarding the suitability of the candidate for registration.
The attached file shows a history of their recommendations made from 1959 to March 4, 2014: PRCWRT Recommendations 1959-Present. Note: some varieties recommended have been registered by CFIA since the file was last updated.
As you look through the list, you’ll see the number of varieties that were supported by the PRCWRT have increased over the years. You will also note that even though a variety was supported by the PRCWRT, not all lines were registered (see comments column).
