For years many farmers just worried about nitrogen and phosphorus but things have changed.  As we have discovered more about the way the plant reacts to different nutrients, farmers look to anyway to increase the overall health and yield of the canola plant.  There seems to be differing opinions on the need for micro nutrients depending on which crop you are talking about.  I thought it would be prudent to talk to Ross McKenzie, who knows more about fertilizer than any scientist that I know.  I asked Ross about the impact that Copper, Boron and Chloride have on your canola yield.  Please leave your thoughts in the comment box below regarding what your experiences have been with canola and micro nutrients.
