Harvest Sample Program ramping up again
By Top Crop Manager
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
Details about how to access your information online, by phone or email are available on the Canadian Grain Commission website: www.grainscanada.gc.ca.
