Free assessment of oil, protein and chlorophyll in your canola

August 31, 2016 - Issue 24

Get oil, protein and chlorophyll content, a dockage assessment and an unofficial grade of your canola simply in exchange for submitting your canola sample to the Canadian Grain Commission’s Harvest Sample Program.

When you sign up, you’ll get a Harvest Sample kit that includes envelopes for sending in samples of your crop. In addition to canola, they will also provide protein content on barley, beans, chick peas, lentils, oats, peas and wheat, oil and protein content and iodine value for flaxseed and oil and protein for mustard seed and soybeans.

By sending your sample in before November each year, you’ll also be supporting:
—The marketing of Canadian grain
—The evaluation of the effectiveness of grain grading factors
—Research projects that benefit producers include finding new uses for grain to help create new markets for your product.

NOTE: The grade provided through the Harvest Sample Program is considered unofficial.
