CWAD quality data released

Oct. 1, 2013, Winnipeg, MB – Protein content data from the 2013 Canada Western Amber Durum harvest from 1 crop region were released today.

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:

  1. Protein content only by crop region and grade, based on individual samples received. Data will be updated weekly.
  2. Key functional parameters by crop region and grade, based on regional composites, when sufficient representative samples from each crop region have been received and composites have been made for analysis.
  3. Comprehensive quality analysis by grade based on final composites of all regions, as provided in previous years.
Quality test results in phase 2 will include test weight, hard vitreous kernel percentages, kernel weight, ash content, falling number and wheat pigment content.

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.
