Wheat, Canada Western Red Spring - 2015 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.

Data released in phases

Data fields will remain empty until a representative number of samples have been collected to validate the information.

The Canada Western Red Spring wheat quality data will be released in 3 phases:

  1. Protein content only by crop region and grade, based on individual samples received. Data will be updated weekly.
  2. Key quality parameters by crop region and grade, based on regional composites, when sufficient representative samples from each crop region have been received and composites have been made for analysis.
  3. Comprehensive quality analysis by grade with protein segregation, where applicable, based on final composites. A comparison to 2014 data will be available.

Protein content

Note:

Protein content is determined by near infrared measurements calibrated against the Combustion Nitrogen Analysis reference method and is expressed on an N x 5.7, 13.5% moisture basis.

Results are unlikely to represent samples harvested within the past two weeks.

NS indicates insufficient number of samples to generate a representative value.
