Canola Hybrid Trial Notes

We seeded canola onto wheat stubble and it was difficult to find moisture when setting the depth. We set the depth at 1.25 inch depth to keep the seed in soil moisture. The first major rain event came a month later. We received 2″ of rain which came down slowly and was able to soak in, allowing for a second flush of germination. The canola came up in 2-3 different stages, which in return made it difficult for staging of chemical applications moving forward. We did see in the range of 20-25% loss due to high winds and environmental challenges including snow.
