As a result of the late harvest in the province, the Canadian Grain Commission has extended the deadline for their Harvest Sample Program. The new deadline to submit a sample is December 30th, 2022, and producers have until December 12th to register.
The program is free to participate in, and producers will receive the following results to use when marketing and delivering grain:
- Unofficial grade*
- Dockage assessment on canola and mustard
- Protein content on barley, beans, chickpeas, lentils, oats, peas, and wheat
- Oil, protein, and chlorophyll content for canola
- Oil and protein content and iodine value for flaxseed
- Oil and protein for mustard seed and soybeans
- Falling number for wheat and rye
- Vomitoxin (deoxynivalenol or DON) levels for wheat, corn, and barley
*All grade, dockage, and quality results are assessed by the Canadian Grain Commission. The grade provided through the Harvest Sample Program is unofficial because samples aren’t collected by a Canadian Grain Commission inspector.
