In addition, they will be showing producers how to collect a representative sample of grain and the benefits of utilizing programs such as the Harvest Sample Program and the “Subject to Inspector’s Grade and Dockage” program.
Representatives from the Canadian International Grains Institute (Cigi) will be making presentations on the importance of the high-quality of Canadian wheat to our export customers.
