Harvest Sample Program

Get an assessment of your grain’s quality

New for 2018-19

Harvest Sample Program participants now receive Falling Number and deoxynivalenol (DON) results for their wheat samples at no cost! This enhancement to the Harvest Sample Program is the first initiative to be funded by the Canadian Grain Commission’s accumulated surplus.

Falling number and DON results are posted within 15 business days once we receive your samples. Your results will be available through your online account as soon as testing is complete. The Harvest Sample Program is a voluntary program for Canadian grain producers. If you sign up, you will receive a Harvest Sample kit annually that contains envelopes for sending in samples of your crop.

In exchange for your samples, you’ll receive the following results that you can use when marketing and delivering your grain.

  • Unofficial grade
  • Dockage assessment on canola
  • Protein content on barley, beans, chick peas, lentils, oats, peas and wheat
  • Oil, protein and chlorophyll content for canola
  • Oil and protein content and iodine value for flaxseed
  • Oil and protein for mustard seed and soybeans
  • Falling number for wheat
  • Vomitoxin (deoxynivalenol or DON) levels for wheat

Mail us your sample(s) as soon as you finish harvesting your crop. We accept samples until November 1.

All grade, dockage and quality results are assessed by the Canadian Grain Commission. The grade provided through the Harvest Sample Program is unofficial because samples aren’t collected by a Canadian Grain Commission inspector.
