Farmers looking at seeding Durum this year are gathering in Swift Current Thursday for a Durum Summit.

Canada supply’s about 50% of the global durum market with the majority of that durum coming from the South West.

With the tariff situation in Pulses this year, there’s the potential for some of those acres to shift to other commodities like Durum, depending of course on the farmer's rotation.

Producers are learning more about some of the work being done around Fusarium Head Blight, meeting consumer expectations for Pasta, high tech agriculture and building public trust.

The event is sold out and will provide producers with updates on matching genetics to demand, responding to environmental pressures and growing a more profitable crop.

The event also features a Durum Producer panel talking about what they do on their operations.
