Producers right across the prairies will benefit from the Alberta Wheat Commission's new price and data quote site (PDQ). The site will improve a farmer's ability to make well-informed marketing decisions and to maximize the value of their crops.

John DePape with Farmers Advanced Risk Management says the site provides daily spot and forward bid pricing information from the Western Grain Elevator Association.

"Everyday at about 2 o'clock, they send to PDQ, all their price data on those commodities," he says. "Our computer, our server, calculates the regional averages and displays that on the website."

This will include averages for Canada Western Spring Wheat, Canada Western Amber Durum wheat, Canada Prairie Spring Wheat, canola, and peas. They expect to add more commodities as the website progresses.
