Combining in high temperatures

Combining has begun in some areas and high temperatures are predicted across the west in the coming days. It is important to remember that canola storage can be a concern even at seed moisture levels considered dry when the canola is binned at high temperatures. The high temperatures can make canola volatile for the first few weeks. Canola should be put into bins with aeration and it should be turned on to cool down the temperature of binned canola. It should be conditioned to below 15 °C and 8% moisture for long term storage. Click here to view a video of Les Hill’s combine tips.
