About Prairie Grain Development Committee

The Prairie Grain Development Committee (PGDC) is a forum for the exchange of information relevant to the development of improved cultivars of grain crops for the western Canadian prairies.

The four independent recommending committees are responsible for the testing, evaluation, and recommending of grain crop candidate cultivars for registration in Western Canada:

  • Prairie Recommending Committee for Wheat, Rye and Triticale (PRCWRT)
  • Prairie Recommending Committee for Oat and Barley (PRCOB)
  • Prairie Recommending Committee for Pulse & Special Crops (PRCPSC)
  • Prairie Recommending Committee for Oilseeds (PRCO)
