A reminder for farmers to keep a close eye on your crop in storage.Harvesting Canola

According to the latest edition of Canola, watch delivery points report a spike in heated canola.

Growers are encouraged to check all canola bins as soon as possible.

Spoilage usually starts small but can spread quickly.

Even with temperature cables, start points are not always detected until some of the grain is already damaged.

Cooling the bin and stopping this early heating now can save a lot of money in lost grade and lost delivery options.

Transferring canola from one bin to another is the best way to detect heating. Hand probing through doors or roof hatches is unreliable for finding hot spots near the core of the bin.
