Harvest Sample Program ramping up again

Aug. 15, 2013 – The Canadian Grain Commission is reminding producers they have until Nov. 1 to send in a grain sample to get a free unofficial grade and quality information through the Harvest Sample Program.

Sign up by Oct. 15 to receive your free kit, which includes postage-paid envelopes and instructions for sending in your sample. Producers who send in a grain sample are also eligible to win prizes.

Producers who send in samples will gain access to information such as:

  • Protein content on cereal grains and pulses
  • Oil, protein and chlorophyll content for canola
  • Oil and protein content and iodine value for flaxseed
  • Oil and protein for mustard seed and soybeans
New this year, the Canadian Grain Commission is providing dockage assessment for canola samples.

Details about how to access your information online, by phone or email are available on the Canadian Grain Commission website: www.grainscanada.gc.ca.
