CWB issues contract calls for wheat and advance calls for durum

The Canadian Wheat Board has announced announced advance delivery calls on Series B delivery contracts for No.1, 2 and 3 Canada Western Amber Durum (CWAD) and Series C wheat contracts for the 2008-09 crop year. They include CWRS. CPS red and white, CWES, CWRW and CWES.

Farmers with Series B contracts will be able to haul up to 45 tonnes per permit book holder, prior to the scheduled announcement of acceptance levels for the Series B CWAD contracts.

The CWB said the early calls will enable it to meet nearby sales commitments and provide farmers with earlier delivery opportunity, while allowing the CWB to continue to assess the overall market to determine final acceptance levels.

Full details are on the CWB website.
