Canary Seed Overview
Canary seed is a cereal grain crop. There are two kinds of canary seed: itchy and itchless. The itchy type has little hairs that make the skin itchy, which makes it difficult during harvest. The itchless type was developed at the Crop Development Centre in Saskatoon and it does not have the hairs.
Barley, oats, wheat, and canary seed are all cereal crops that are grown in Saskatchewan.
The countries that grow a lot of canary seed are Canada, Hungary, and Argentina. Saskatchewan produces most of the canary seed grown in Canada, and it is mainly grown near Kindersley, Regina, and Melfort.
