Harvest Science, the CGC's online newsletter for grain producers launched

WINNIPEG, Nov. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - The Canadian Grain Commission's Grain Research Laboratory has launched an online grain science and technology newsletter for producers called Harvest Science.

"Harvest Science is a way to communicate with producers and show them how our research and scientific work contributes to the quality and marketability of their grain," said Peter Burnett, Director of the Grain Research Laboratory.

The theme for the first issue of Harvest Science is: Quality grain means safe grain. The issue explores the Grain Research Laboratory's grain safety work in areas such as Fusarium head blight and shows how its research influenced last year's changes in grading tolerances for fusarium-damaged kernels. Producers will also find information on grain safety topics including Ochratoxin A and safe storage as well as a photo essay showing how they can contribute to grain safety by sending in grain samples to the Canadian Grain Commission's Harvest Sample Program.

While primarily focused on communicating with Canadian grain producers, Harvest Science also provides updates to the scientific community on the programs of the Grain Research Laboratory.

To read the first issue of Harvest Science visit www.grainscanada.gc.ca and sign up to receive notification of future issues through the Canadian Grain Commission's RSS feeds.

The Canadian Grain Commission is the federal agency responsible for establishing and maintaining Canada's grain quality standards. Its programs result in shipments of grain that consistently meet contract specifications for quality, safety and quantity. The Canadian Grain Commission regulates the grain industry to protect producers' rights and ensure the integrity of grain transactions.
