Wet canola in bags

What's the toughest canola anybody has put in bags and how long did u leave it before picking up?
We've bagged a lot of tough grain but it's always been cereal crops. Never put canola in bags before we always set aside bin space. Combined lots of very tough canola too but it usually goes straight into the dryer. Now we have canola left that's testing 18-20 average that's been down over a month and won't cure or dry which I think is mainly due to the lack of any kind of decent weather. We are chewing away at it but only enough to keep the dryer going. At this rate we will never finish so thinking about combining the rest and putting it in bags and then cleaning them up as needed to dry. Don't have enough air bins and power in the yard to go the bin route. Will it keep a few weeks or will it be a wreck ?

We put some really wet stuff in bags at almost freezing and it kept getting colder and it kept fine. Seal the ends up right away because of it starts heating it will be there. The trick really is the cold temp.

Then you prob them once a week while you catch up drying. Or at least till you see the temp dropping.

I’m wondering the same . We have a **** ton of canola left and it keeps pissing rain and snowing . I want to take as much off as possible and just bag it . Dry it later as the dryer can’t keep up .... over 14 % canola it may have to send it through twice . Hopefully some more guys can chime in on this topic .....

10.5 canola this time of year is no problem. Going in the bin cooler. Just keep an eye on it for the next couple weeks. In the middle of winter when it's good and cold out, put a load on a couple of trucks and leave it for a day or two before putting it back in, get it ice cold. Putting it in a bin at 10.5 when it's 30 degrees is a different story! Assuming you mean bins without air?

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Really shouldn't be a problem at these temps. A lot of green seed can change that though so need to stay on top of it. Don't just slam it in there and forget about it!

10.5,is no sweat . It will keep . I’d turn the bin in a few weeks to make sure and get it hauled out before the summer heat hits the bin

I've seen canola combined so wet that the outside 12" or so froze solid in the bag, had to be chipped apart by hand to get it to flow through the extractor. Can't remember what it was testing. You'll be fine if it's not warm going in, especially if it's only a few weeks.
