Keep Malathion Out of Canola Bins

Malathion residue can linger in bins for months after treatment and can be transferred from the bin to canola seed, putting marketability at risk. Canola found with malathion residues is unacceptable for export customers and can damage Canada’s reputation as a trusted supplier of high-quality canola.

Reduce the risk of contaminating your harvest by planning storage requirements accordingly — never use malathion to prepare canola for storage or treat bins in which you plan to store canola.

Malathion can be used to treat cereals and other non-oilseed grains in bins that have been contaminated with insects. Any grower doing so should record the date of treatment and must not use that bin to store canola in this growing season.

Double Crop Soybean Growth Time Lapse

Video: Double Crop Soybean Growth Time Lapse

Got a minute? Watch out double crop soybeans go from seed to harvest! Double crops had a tough season this year. Wheat actually came off about a week early which is usually good because the double crop being seeded right after gets a head start over most years. However, it was very dry at planting causing the seeds to take a few weeks to emerge. Then a few frosts in early October killed the double crop off before it could fully mature.
