Tolerances for red smudge in amber durum wheat have been removed, and the total smudge tolerance for No. 1 amber durum has changed from 0.3 per cent to 0.5 per cent, according to the Canadian Grain Commission. These changes are based on recommendations made to the CGC by the Western Standards Committee and the Eastern Standards Committee at their meetings in April. Also based on the committees’ recommendation, an updated standard print for Lentils, Canada, other than Red, Reasonably Good Natural Colour took effect April 24 in both Eastern and Western Canada. Standard samples and standard prints previously adopted for other grades and grains will continue to be used.
