Glenlea could also change Canada's position of not having a wheat variety in large-scak production that is economical for Asian noodle manufacturing, he said. On the basis of tests carried out on samples sent them last winter, Asian food manufacturers report Glenlea had a good flour extraction rate very suitable for certain types of noodles. Mr. Yelland said the promise of an open quota and early delivery for bushels for each 50-acre contract signed makes the Glenlea very attractive. Glenlea feeding trials show that the nutritive value of the wheat is as least equal to No. 1 Canadian western red spring wheat, Mr. Yelland said. Two tests involving broilers and laying hens indicated that Glenlea was superior to No. 1 Canada western. Glenlea. developed at the University of Manitoba and licensed in 1972, is a cross between Pembina and a number of Mexican wheats. Not as late as the utility wheat Pitic 62. it matures several days later than the Canada western red spring wheats, occasionally more than several days later, depending on climatic conditions.
