Managing high-moisture canola

It is an understatement to say there were harvest challenges for some Prairie farmers in 2019. For more than a few producers, harvest had to be suspended until this spring due to excessive moisture in fields. But not only did poorly timed precipitation create immediate harvest issues, it also became a grain storage issue as late-harvested crops that came off fields had high moisture levels and needed to be dried down a lot more than usual.

At Manitoba Ag Days earlier this year, Angela Brackenreed with the Canola Council of Canada addressed some of the grain storage issues producers dealt with after this past harvest season, how high-moisture canola can react in a bagged or binned system, and ‘air’s capacity to dry’ your grain.
