Canola Calculator

Canola Calculator –

One of the goals of the Canola Council of Canada’s strategic plan is to reach an average yield of 52 bu/ac by 2025. It is a bold and achievable target, aimed at meeting the growing global demand for canola products. The key is a better understanding of the best agronomic practices for every soil zone and every field – plus ongoing improvements to canola seed. The average yield at the time of strategic plan development was 34 bu/ac. Tools housed in this site are all targeted to improve the yield and profitability of Canadian canola growers.

Plant Density and Seeding Rate calculators:

By 2025, the CCC estimates that improvements in plant establishment can increase average yields by 3 bu/ac. The stand establishment calculators here aim to drive a deeper understanding of plant density and seeding rate targets, and will assist growers in making decisions that improve their yield in a profitable, tangible way. If you are looking for further information about any of the factors listed, look for the Information Icon icon or visit the Canola Encyclopedia Crop Establishment section.
