Grain Commission reminds elevator operators about on-ground storage

Noting this fall’s record crop in Canada, the Canadian Grain Commission has reminded licensed primary elevators that Canada Grain Regulations require that before storing grain on the ground, a licensed elevator must request an exemption in writing, advising the commission of the kind of grain to be stored on the ground and the date the it’s received.

The CGC also reminded elevator operators that producers may also be storing grain on the ground on the farm, and that under the Canada Grain Act a licensed grain handling facility cannot receive grain that is contaminated. As well, a licensed elevator can refuse to receive grain that is out of condition, or is likely to go out of condition.
