Canola School -- Safe Storage of Canola & Why You Need to Check Bins Now

by

With a mostly beautiful harvest under our belts and the cold weather setting in, it’s easy to forget that some canola went into the bin on very, very hot days. While 8% moisture is considered the “safe” moisture level for long-term canola storage, the safety of that bin is in jeopardy if the temperature was or is above 15 degrees C. It takes a surprising length of time for a bin’s internal temperature to drop from 30 (or higher!) to 15, and until it does there is a risk of spoilage, even at 8% moisture.  It’s also not likely to reach a uniform temperature and moisture level without at least some work on your part.

In this episode of the Canola School, Angela Brackenreed, agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada, based at Brandon, Man., talks about what you can do to avoid storage losses, and reminds us that now is a great time to check on bins.
