Detailed structure and explanatory notes
CPC Ver.2 code 011Structure Notes
This Group is divided into the following Classes:
This group includes cereals, i.e. annual plants, generally of the gramineous family, yielding grains or seeds used as such, or processed, for food, feed, seed and industrial purposes, e.g., ethanol. The denomination "cereals" should be limited to crops harvested for their dry grains only.
The subclasses labeled for seeds contain cereals grown specifically as seeds, whether or not processed. These seeds usually must fulfill certain quality requirements. Cereals not grown specifically for seed purposes should be classified as "other", even though some portion of the yield may be used as seed by the farmer.
