SaskWheat calls for creation of grain export sales reporting program

SaskWheat is calling for the creation of an export sales reporting program.

The proposal is part of a submission for the federal review of the Canada Grain Act.

A report for SaskWheat found the lack of appropriate data led to farmers missing out on better sales timing in the current crop year.

The SaskWheat submission says market transparency is a key issue for farmers and wants legislation requiring grain companies to report daily and weekly sales data over a specified size to the Canadian Grain Commission.

SaskWheat supports the current governance of the grain commission and supports mandatory outward inspection remaining with the grain commission.

SaskWheat worries of moves to an accredited third-party inspection would create significant risks to the branding of Canadian wheat.

April 30th is the deadline for submissions to the federal review of the Canada Grain Act.
