Canola that goes in the bin dry but hot is still at risk for spoilage. The same can be said for grain with high weed seed, insect parts or just dockage in general. While it seems obvious to some, reports of full bin losses happen every year — losses that could be avoided simply by monitoring, moving some grain or using aeration.
In this Canola School video, Keith Gabert runs through the risk profile of canola in storage, how different bin set ups require different monitoring tactics and offers some advice on flagging at-risk bins. What’s more, Gabert discusses marketing strategies with storage risk in mind, as well as runs through why farmers need to be especially vigilant that bins used to store canola are malathion-free.
