Research by PAMI at one site in Portage La Prairie, Man., in 2016 compared straight cut treatments of Reglone or Heat plus glyphosate, and natural ripening to swathing in 2016. Each treatment was harvested as maturity and weather conditions permitted.
The thought of eliminating a pass over the field and more than $175,000 in capital equipment is tempting. Nathan Gregg, a researcher at the Prairie Agriculture Machinery Institute (PAMI) investigated whether straight-cutting canola was a viable option compared to swathing.
Too hot. Too cold. Stressed. Hail damage. Often, these and other factors are cited when referring to a canola yield response to boron (B) application. Research over the years tends to indicate that a yield response to boron is unlikely under most circumstances. Still, around 20 per cent of canola…
Manitoba Agriculture’s clubroot distribution map shows an increase in clubroot symptoms observed in central Manitoba.
The Canola Council of Canada (CCC) released a new web-based application to help producers with combine adjustments during harvest, maximize yield and edge growers closer to an average yield of 52 bu/ac by 2025.
With high canola prices relative to other commodities, the temptation to run continuous canola is high. But does it really pay in the short term? A research study shows that net returns aren’t necessarily better, and that insect and disease pressures increase over time.
Along with good agronomic practices, weather and growing conditions impact harvest seed yield and quality of annual field crops including canola. Although predicting growing season weather remains a challenge, a team of researchers wanted to know if it might be possible to predict canola quality prior to harvest by looking…
One part BY 6060. Two parts CS 2000. Equal pinches of Nex 1022 and BY 6074. This fancy cocktail of canola hybrids just might perform better than planting only one of the hybrids in a field. Greg Stamp of Stamp Seeds in Enchant, Alta., ran demonstration trials in 2016 and…
Green seed in canola is a downgrading factor that causes more than $150 million in losses annually. But researchers at the University of Calgary hope to help reduce those losses with the identification of a gene that helps the de-greening process.
Nitrogen (N) fertilizer management continues to be a priority for farmers and researchers, with a large research focus on the effect of N management in the year of implementation. However, researchers also want to understand the longer-term implications of N fertilizer strategies and decisions in a cropping system.
How much do you know about scouting in the weeks right after seeding? Test your knowledge with these five questions and learn more about the topic.
According to Angela Brackenreed, an agronomy specialist for the Canola Council of Canada, seed losses during canola harvest are often higher than producers might think – about two bushels per acre on average, but can reach double digits in in extreme cases.
The Canola Council welcomes the recent decision of the Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues to advance for adoption the proposed maximum residue limit (MRL) for quinclorac in canola. While this is a positive step, to date, an international MRL at Codex is not yet formally adopted. The Codex Alimentarius Commission…
Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Agriculture will be conducting a more extensive clubroot survey this year to try and get ahead of the soil-borne disease. Penny McCall, executive director of the ministry’s crops and irrigation branch says they will be surveying 1,800 fields across the province’s northern and eastern crop districts. |…
Farmers can count on 20 to 50 per cent of the moisture from snow-melt to enter the soil. This variability depends a lot on surface soil moisture conditions. A North Dakota study (Willis and Haas) concluded that 50 per cent of snow-melt moisture runs off or evaporates when surface soils…
