Snowed-in Canola Samples Needed for Research

April 13, 2017

 

From the Jan 12, 2017 Issue of Agri-News

The Canadian Grain Commission needs samples of canola that has been harvested late due to weather conditions or has been over-wintered. Samples must be from the 2016 crop. As of October 31, 2016, a large number of canola fields in Alberta and Saskatchewan had not been harvested due to snow.
The impact of snow on canola quality has not been studied. The Canadian Grain Commission wants to assess the impact of snowed-in and over-wintered canola on the quality of the 2016 crop. This research will help develop an understanding of the impact of this type of weather on the end-use functionality of canola. The results of this research will help ensure the Canadian canola industry continues to supply a consistent and dependable commodity to end-use customers.

To participate in this study and receive information about the quality of your canola crop, send an e-mail to Dr. Veronique Barthet or Twylla McKendry. Participants will receive an envelope for their canola sample and a consent card by mail.
