Residue Management for Better Stand Establishment

October 14, 2014

Residue management may prove a challenge this year, as many prairie crops experienced high levels of lodging, but it’s nothing to ignore, especially if you’re considering canola as your next crop. Excess trash can affect seed-to-soil contact by either preventing drill openers from penetrating into the soil or filling the furrow, thus preventing row closure. These problems can no doubt result in spotty emergence, and later, disappointing yields.

In this Canola School, Shawn Senko, agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada, talks further on the importance of trash management. Senko emphasizes the importance of proper combine settings and an even residue spread, but also discusses what you can do, if it’s simply too late.
