14  Montana  North Dakota Source: North Dakota State University Hard Red Spring wheat Quality Lab Durum wheat Quality Lab Plant Sciences Department U.S. NORTHERN DURUM 2005 Quality Based on approximately 290 durum samples collected during harvest. Samples are random and represent individual fields.

15 Durum: 2005 Overview  Planting  Rapid planting pace  60% seeded by May 15  Growing season  Excellent growing conditions  Above average moisture, limited disease issues  Some areas in the south and west suffered from heat during kernel development  Harvest  Rapid harvest - double 2004 pace  Some rain delays in areas, but generally near ideal harvest  Overall  Crop average #1 HAD with high falling number  Well above average yields but lower protein content  Improved semolina yield and pasta color

16 DURUM: Test Weight

17 DURUM: Thousand Kernel Weight 2005 regional thousand kernel weight is 35.5 grams.

18 U.S. & CANADIAN DURUM PROTEIN LEVELS

19 DURUM: Protein Distribution

20 DURUM: Dockage Content 2005 regional average dockage content is 1.5 percent.

21 DURUM: Falling Number 2005 regional average falling number is 378 seconds.

22 DURUM: Total Defects 2005 regional average total defects is 2.2 percent.

23 DURUM: Vitreous Kernel Content

24 DURUM: 2005 Vitreous Kernels by Crop Area 94% 84% 73% 76% Montana A-B 95%

25 DURUM: Quantity Estimate by Grade 71% grades 2HAD or better.

31  California  Arizona U.S. DESERT DURUM Desert Durum® - A trademark of Arizona Grain Research and Promotion Council and the California Wheat Commission.  Applies only to durum produced in AZ and CA.  Planted in December-February and harvested in May and June.  Typically sold on variety or identity preserved basis.  Large share of production is contracted prior to planting.  Low moisture, uniform large kernels and very strong gluten are features of the crop. Additional information is available on the California Wheat Commission website

32  2005 acres were sharply lower due to untimely rains at planting  Growing season was generally cool  2006 plantings still uncertain - due to lower prices and higher input costs DESERT DURUM 4-YR Production Trend Source: California Wheat Commission and USW
