US/Canada grain trading

Canadian wheat and barley can now be contracted and sold through the open market from any supplier to any buyer. This new freedom has opened up American markets for Alberta farmers. Export licenses are no longer needed to export wheat and barley to the U.S.

Farmers seeking to take their wheat and barley across the border must be aware of the rules and regulations set by American grain elevators, buyers, and state and federal governments. Canadian farmers are bound to U.S. law when conducting business or traveling within the United States.
