Seed companies encourage growers to return unused unopened bags of canola seed. That way the seed company can ensure that seed is stored properly to maintain its high quality. Growers get their money back. At least one company has a deadline of June 30, so if you have seed to return, you may want to check right away.
Can’t deliver on a contract? Growers with delivery contracts they will not be able to fulfill due to unseeded or flooded acres should contact the company now. Early action will help growers find the best course of action.
