Grain Marketing is a grading and inspection program in the Office of Commodity Services.  The program provides inspection and weighing services for both domestic and export markets. Quality is certified according to the official U.S. standards for specific grains.

Grain Marketing enforces Virginia's grain laws for grain handlers and dealers, assuring that grading, weighing and records are accurate and Virginia grain producers receive prompt and accurate payment. To teach proper grading procedures, Grain Marketing holds informative grain grading workshops for producers and industry.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) has Grain Marketing offices in Chesapeake and Richmond. Equipped with grain grading labs, these offices are staffed with knowledgeable employees to answer questions and provide information.
