The Canadian Grain Commission is in the midst of conducting its
annual fall harvest survey.

Spokeswoman Andrea Geary says the goal is to identify the quality
profile of the crops grown in western Canada.

She notes the testing regime the samples go through is dependent
on type of grain.

An unofficial grade and protein level is given in all cases, but
oil content is available for canola and flax as well.

The information gathered is then made available through the
Commission's website to industry officials, plus potential buyers of
western Canadian grain.
