WINNIPEG, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Protein content data from the 2013 Canada Western Amber Durum harvest from 1 crop region have just been released at www.grainscanada.gc.ca.
Preliminary data will be updated every Tuesday as samples are received until the 2013 Harvest Sample Program ends.
Quality data on amber durum wheat from 4 crop regions will be released in 3 phases:

New this year, a table showing 10-year average protein content in No. 1 and No. 2 Canada Western Amber Durum by region is available.
Harvest Sample Program
Grain producers participate voluntarily in the program. They submit samples of their crops to the Canadian Grain Commission. We combine samples by crop, class and grade and analyse quality parameters that reflect end-use quality and performance. These data are used by marketers, millers, bakers, brewers and food manufacturers both domestically and internationally.
