Cereals Canada and the Canadian Grain Commission have assessed the quality of the new wheat crop and released a New Wheat Crop Report.
Lisa Nemeth, Director of Market Support and Training with Cereals Canada says the information in that report is shared with our global customers.
She says following last year's challenges with the drought, prairie farmers were able to see an increase in production for 2022 and brought in a high-quality crop.
"The quality is fantastic this year. Over 90% of the Canada Western Red Spring (CWRS) crop graded above a number two, and over 80% of the durum crop (CWAD) was greater than a number two. So high production, high quality and to top it off protein content which is higher than average. So, just an all-around very good news story for wheat production and customers around the world this year."
Over 90% of Canada Prairie Spring Red (CPSR) has graded No. 1 and No. 2, with good protein content, while 99% of Canada Eastern Soft Red Winter wheat graded No. 2 or above with consistently high falling numbers and excellent quality.
According to the report, this year, Canada grew 34.7 million tonnes of wheat, an increase of 55% from last year. Click here to see more...
