As we mentioned last week, we are dealing with abnormal rainfall and cool temps in Alberta and Saskatchewan and that has pushed canola seeding back further than desired. Now that the calendar has entered June, many farmers have started hiring floaters to broadcast seed the canola seed. This is not ideal but the unfortunate reality of a very wet spring.
Matt Stanford and I talk in this episode of the Canola School about some of the things you need to know before you start floating. We discuss fertilizer management, seeding rate and the importance of seed-soil incorporation.
