GRAIN GRADING RESOURCES
Empowering farmers to maximize their canola profitability.
The grade and dockage your canola receives directly affects your bottom line.
Understanding the process for cleaning and assessing dockage in canola, and the factors impacting grading, will help you follow along at the elevator and have confidence in the outcome.
Why keep it clean?
Our domestic processors, grain buyers and export customers trust the quality and cleanliness of these crops, but are increasingly testing shipments with highly sensitive equipment for levels of pesticide residues and traces of disease to ensure they comply with set maximum residue limits (MRLs). Additional challenges include different MRLs around the world and a country’s potential refusal to accept any residues until a standard is in place.
