New crop year reminders for Eastern producers, industry
By Top Crop Manager
June 30, 2015 - The Canadian Grain Commission is reminding the grain industry and producers about grain grading changes that come into effect on July 1, 2015 in Eastern Canada.
Tolerances for red smudge in amber durum wheat will be removed and the total smudge tolerance for No. 1 amber durum is changing from 0.3 to 0.5 per cent.
The Official Grain Grading Guide as of July 1, 2015, will be posted shortly before the start of the new crop year.
The Canadian Grain Commission is replacing its official moisture meter with a model that uses Unified Grain Moisture Algorithm (UGMA) technology. The organization will continue to maintain conversion charts for Model 919/3.5" and 393/3.5" moisture meters.
