Growers encouraged to participate in Harvest Sample Program

Aug. 22, 2014 - The Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) is encouraging growers to participate in the Canadian Grain Commission's (CGC) Harvest Sample Program and in turn help promote two wheat classes with significant untapped market potential.

The quality characteristics of Canada Prairie Spring Wheat (CPSR) and Canada Western Red Winter Wheat (CWRW) will be highlighted in new crop missions in key Canadian wheat markets in November and December 2014. Growers are encouraged to submit samples of these varieties to the program, along with Canada Western Red Spring Wheat (CWRS) and Canada Western Amber Durum (CWAD).

Facilitated by the Canadian Grain Commission's (CGC) Grains Research Lab, the Harvest Sample Program provides an opportunity to showcase a composite overview of Canadian wheat to international markets.

Growers can submit samples in harvest sample envelopes supplied by the CGC, highlighting both the class and the variety grown. Growers will receive a free grade, dockage and protein assessment of their sample, which in turn helps growers with marketing decisions.

Participate in the Harvest Sample Program.
