New for 2017: Automatic Harvest Sample results

News Release

September 22, 2017            Winnipeg       Canadian Grain Commission

This year, it is easier and faster for producers to get their Harvest Sample Program results. As soon as a sample is analyzed, producers will automatically get an email with their free unofficial grade and quality results as long as they provided a current email address. In addition, producers can also call 1-888-324-2248, email or get their results online at

To take part in the program, producers use postage-paid grain envelopes from their Harvest Sample kits to send the Canadian Grain Commission samples of grain from their harvest. The Canadian Grain Commission uses these samples to generate annual harvest quality reports.

Producers have until December 31 to submit their samples.
