Canola stand density can be significantly reduced when seed-placed phosphate and sulphur fertilizers are used in combination, with sulphur being particularly damaging.
Cynthia Grant with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) led this broad study, using field, growth chamber and laboratory trials in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec to evaluate improved practices for sulphur (S), phosphate (P) and nitrogen (N) management in canola.Open the PDF to read the entire research summary from the 2013 Science Issue of Canola Digest
