New standard samples for Eastern grains

The Canadian Grain Commission’s Eastern Standards Committee has released new standard samples and standard prints (photographs) for peas, pea beans and lentils.

The committee also recommended a new guide for No. 1 Canada Eastern Red (Winter), Mildew Guide.

Standard samples and standard prints represent the subjective visual grading factors that are most common in a given year. Standard samples and standard prints reflect the proportion of such factors as frost, mildew, immaturity and adhered material seen in this year’s harvest. Standard prints are digital photographs rather than physical samples of grain.

Canadian Grain Commission inspection experts reported that the most common grading factors were frost and mildew in wheat, bleaching and staining in lentils and mould and weather staining in beans.
