CGC Harvest Sample Program: Receive free grades for your grain!

With the wheat harvest well underway across the province, we remind you to send in your samples to the Canadian Grain Commission’s Harvest Sample Program. This is an opportunity to receive free, unofficial CGC grade and quality results that include protein content on cereal grains. Samples collected assist with the marketing of Canadian grain, evaluating grain grades and research projects that benefit farmers.

As well, several rapid molecular techniques were developed and are now routinely used to detect and identify AY strains in plant and insects.
