Preparing and protecting grains for market

REMINDER – A few helpful tools to keep at your finger tips:

Since May we have posted our prairie provinces’ searchable PDFs of Crop Production Guides.

Keeping It Clean has information to help prepare and protect your grains for market.  Check out their site to find important information.  Learn more about avoiding malathion in bins storing canola, access their spray to swath calculator, and access a pre-harvest glyphosate staging guide

The Canadian Grain Commission has information to help you manage stored grain.  Read tips to prepare your bins to prevent insect infestations.  If there are insects in your grain, use their online diagnostic tools to help identify the problem species.  If pest species are confirmed, there are control options – read more to make the right choice for your grain storage system and your specific grain.
