Durum Crop Quality Report

The durum crop quality report provides grading data, kernel quality data, semolina quality data and pasta processing properties of the Northern durum crop. Samples are collected at harvest time in North Dakota and Montana and analyzed at the Durum Wheat Quality and Pasta Processing Laboratory at North Dakota State University. The reports are made available in late October each year. Use the links below to view the full reports.

2016 Summary

The 2016 durum crop in Montana and North Dakota is the largest since 2000 and nearly 50 percent larger than 2015 due to record
yields and a one-third increase in planted area. The crop averages No. 1 Hard Amber Durum with grade parameters that are very
similar to 2015. The crop benefited from mostly dry conditions for the bulk of the harvest, although significant differences in moisture and disease pressure during the last
half of the growing season resulted in a big difference in DON levels in some of the northern growing regions. Functional performance is very similar to the 2015 crop for milling and pasta processing qualities.
