| ||AWB upgrades classification of Sapphire in WA|| ||
AWB has upgraded the classification of wheat variety GBA Sapphire, following further testing and evaluation through the AWB National Pool Variety Classification Panel.
The variety was previously classified as Australian Premium White (APW) in Western Australia and has now been upgraded to Australian Hard (AH).
At the time of the initial classification, the Panel declared there was a possibility that GBA Sapphire may be reviewed once higher protein samples had been obtained for classification. Following this extended evaluation process, and variety has met the quality standards for an AH classification.
The variety is commercialised by Pioneer Hi-Bred Australia.
