The harvest excluding durum may total 21.089 million tons, above last month’s forecast and more than the 20.142 million produced a year earlier, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said today in an e-mailed statement. Production of durum, used to make pasta, may total 4.172 million tons, compared with 3.025 million last year.
