QUIZ – Storage risks

Three questions on storage risks canola growers may face during harvest 2023 – hot seed, lots of chaff and high chlorophyll counts.

1. Canola binned hot can spoil even if moisture is 10% or “dry”. What is the recommended safe maximum temperature for long-term storage? 
2. Under what scenario can green content in canola seeds be reduced after swathing (and before combining)? 
3. Concentrated areas of chaff can be a start point for spoilage, even in a bin where the seeds test dry.The risk from high-moisture dockage tends to be higher in what situation?
