Rules for “distinctly green” and other grading factors
Growers with canola downgraded for green and other factors may benefit from knowing the grading rules.
The Canadian Grain Commission’s Official Grain Grading Guide, which you can read online, says damaged seed includes canola seeds that are: Distinctly shrunken or shriveled; badly discoloured from mould; completely and densely covered with rime; excessively weathered, sprouted, tan coloured, distinctly green, heated, insect damaged or otherwise damaged.
Not all green is “distinctly” green
The Grain Grading Guide says “distinctly green tolerances are applied to crushed seeds which are a distinct green throughout.”
