Determining Best Practices for Summer Storage of Canola in Western Canada
Researcher: Joy Agnew, Les Hill and Bryan Lung, PAMI, Humboldt SK
Project Code: CARP 2014-25
Final Report: December 2014
Summary: In 2014 researchers initiated a project to collect baseline information on how management practices affect the storage conditions of canola over the summer months.
The objectives of the project were to gather baseline data on the effect of bin management (aeration, turning, leaving it alone) on the temperature and relative humidity profile in-bin throughout the summer months. The key recommendation from this project, for canola that is overdry and frozen over the winter, is to leave the bin alone but monitor the temperature profile and have a plan in place to move the seed if problems arise.
