Grasses & Grains

Grains have been the feedstock of human civilizations since ancient times. Canadian grains and seed crops are challenged by long cold winters and shorter growing seasons, forcing the development of hardy varieties which have other great features. Canadian wheat, for example, is very sought-after and is the source of the best Italian pasta.
