Canada Western Red Spring wheat 2017 quality data by crop region

Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba crop regions 1 to 10. Details of regions follow.

Ten crop regions in Western Canada were designated for Canada Western Red Spring based on similarity of environmental characteristics within each region. Consideration was given to directional movement, political boundaries and production (seeded area) in choosing these regions. In addition, areas with a low level of production were grouped with larger production areas to ensure sufficient sample volume for analysis.
