Canola is a valuable crop with a growing number of acres planted every year. Getting those big acres off the field sometimes requires an early start when things maybe aren’t quite ready. How you store that canola then becomes a critical issue if you want to keep that crop from spoiling or degrading. There are times where that crop needs to be cooled, dried or even maintained in storage for long stretches. That requires some close and regular monitoring while in storage. Having the right tools to do that and knowing what to look for are very important.
Trevor Besplug is Territory Manager with Westeel. I asked him some questions about the ins and outs of proper storage of canola after harvest and some of the issues producers may face.
