Green count is a subjective analysis. The CGC has guidelines for what is ‘distinctly green‘ but graders may not assess in the same way. When green counts are higher, farmers may want to take samples to a few delivery points. The level of tough or damp canola that delivery points will accept can vary quite a bit location to location, and often week to week for the same location. Drying costs will also vary. These variations often depend on the location’s drying capacity or immediate needs to fill a train as well as the amount of high-moisture canola in the area.
Harvest Sample Program. You may also want to send in a sample to the Canadian Grain Commission’s Harvest Sample Program, which provides dockage, oil, protein and chlorophyll content for canola. This year, the CGC is particularly interested in canola harvested after the long snow/rain delay. When submitting a sample, please identify when the canola was harvested/binned so the CGC can identify whether it occurred after the snow.
