OMAHA (DTN) -- Canola to be stored on the farm through summer will be safer if warmed up before outside temperatures get high.

"The goal is to reduce the temperature differential between stored canola and the outside air," stated Angela Brackenreed, agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada, in a press release from the Council. "This reduces the amount of moisture movement within the bin, and can prevent the concentration of moisture that can lead to spoilage and heating."

Cold grain should be turned or aerated to raise the grain temperature to between 5 and 10 Celsius.
