Cleaning

Less than optimal field conditions can reduce the quality of your harvested grain. At GM Seed Cleaning, we can improve quality with our three-stage cleaning plant. We operate year-round, removing foreign material, including ergot, other grain, seeds from weeds or other plants, stones, insects, and dust. We process cereal grain, flax, Canola, peas, and a full variety of other seed products.

We routinely exceed the Canadian Seed Institute’s test standards for the seed cleaning and certified seed growers industry. As a result of our commitment to maintaining the industry’s highest standards, we currently hold a multi-year exemption on the C.S.I.’s inspection and re-certification process.
