Impact of Management and Environment on Canola Establishment Based on Survey Data
Principal investigator: Julia Leeson, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Saskatoon, SK
Collaborator: Christoph Neesor
Many canola fields across the Prairies do not have the plant stands needed to meet yield potential. That’s according to surveys in Alberta in 2010 and Saskatchewan in 2012. For the majority of canola producers, improved crop establishment would help their yields.
This is one result from a survey of actual canola fields and interviews with the producers. Julia Leeson conducted the study to establish a baseline of producers’ canola crop establishment practices. In 2010, 218 fields were surveyed in Alberta, and in 2012, 464 fields were surveyed in Saskatchewan. Manitoba data is from surveys conducted in 1,086 canola fields between 2000 and 2003.Open the PDF to read the entire research summary from the 2013 Science Issue of Canola Digest
