Grain Commission seeks spring harvested oilseed samples

The Canadian Grain Commission is asking farmers who harvested canola and flax this spring to send a sample for research.

Over 2-million acres of crop were left overwinter in Saskatchewan and farmers have been busy harvesting in recent weeks.

The oilseeds manager at the Grain Commission research lab in Winnipeg, Veronique Barthet, wants farmers to send in samples for the research project.

She says the research is to analyze the quality of the crops and assess the late harvest impact on quality and functionality.

Barthet says farmers will receive information to help them market the weather downgraded crop.
