  • Herbicide Qs on tank mixing, ideal weather, spray patterns and more

    Here are some agronomy-related questions that dig a little deeper into herbicide performance in canola….


  • Cleavers: In-crop control

    For in-crop management of cleavers in canola, both glyphosate and glufosinate work best on smaller spring-germinating plants. Early herbicide application is also best for crop yield. Use a rate and water volume suitable for cleavers.

  • Blackleg: Early scouting and fungicide

    For fungicide to provide an economic level of blackleg suppression, the crop has to be susceptible to the disease, blackleg incidence and severity must be high (usually due to short canola rotations) and the fungicide has to go on early – cotyledon to 4-leaf stage – before visible symptoms appear.


  • 2017 CPTs off to a good start

    The 2017 Canola Performance Trials are off to a great start this growing season! The 25 CPT small plot sites are distributed across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. All three herbicide tolerance systems and nine different seed companies are represented.


  • June 14: Shorts

    Hot and dry and sand blasting. Tips for spraying in the wind. Do you need a second herbicide application? And more.


  • Insects: Diamondback moth, cutworms, flea beetle and more

    Some fields are thinned by cutworm, diamondback moth larvae are at work but control is not usually required at this crop stage and swede midge are early in Ontario.


  • Top dress tips for nitrogen and sulphur

    Western Canada has a short growing season. Crops in Western Canada start to take up nutrients early and uptake escalates quickly. For these reasons, the ideal timing for fertilizer application is at seeding. This saves an extra pass over the field and ensures that the expected fertilizer requirement is in place when the crop needs it. But there are times when an in-crop top up of nitrogen or sulphur makes sense.
