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:
- Protein content only by crop region and grade, based on individual samples received. Data will be updated weekly.
- 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.
- Comprehensive quality analysis by grade based on final composites of all regions, as provided in previous years.
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.
