Snow on fields

The Canola Watch 2013 exam is posted and ready. Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and Certified Crop Science Consultants (CCSCs) who achieve 70% will get 6.5 credits.

Ultimate Canola Challenge results show that many of the additive products tested would not have provided an economic return — based on 2013 results. The challenge will likely be repeated in 2014, which will give us more confidence in the results.

Growers still making seed decisions are reminded to look at www.canolaperformancetrials.ca. And if you’re in an area known to have clubroot or near an area known to have clubroot, seriously consider a clubroot resistant variety.
