New grade specifications for Canada Western Red Winter Wheat

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) has announced three grade changes for Canada Western Red Winter Wheat (CWRW) to take effect Aug. 1, 2011. 

Those changes include establishing a minimum grade specification of 11 per cent protein for No. 1 and No. 2 Canada Western Red Winter (CWRW) wheat, and reduced tolerances for fusarium-damaged kernels in No. 1 and No. 2 CWRW wheat.

The changes also introduce a grade schedule for a newly created No. 3 CWRW wheat grade.For more information go to: www.grainscanada.gc.ca
