It is very easy to get sidetracked by what has already happened but we need to stay focused on what needs to be done in order to save the crop that we do have. This includes prioritizing the better fields and making sure that they are getting the attention they need.

I chatted this week with Denise Maurice, VP of Crop Production, Canola Council of Canada on the challenges of the rest of the summer. Denise discusses insects, crop nutrition and harvest.
