The Canadian Grain Commission is extending the deadlines for its Harvest Sample Program by a month because of this year’s late harvest.
Producers now have until Nov. 30 to register online at www.grainscanada.gc.ca and until Dec. 31 to submit samples taken from their crops.
There is no cost, and participating producers are emailed a report that includes an unofficial grade, protein, and dockage for their grain. As well, this year, producers who send in wheat samples will get Falling Number and DON (deoxynivalenol) results.
“Having quality results in hand when they go to the elevators will help producers make the best of a challenging year,” said chief commissioner Patti Miller.
