Canola School: Making the Decision to Reseed Your Canola


In this episode of the Canola School,  Canola Council of Canada agronomist, Troy Prosofsky discusses the issue of reseeding.  Less than ideal plant stands are not good for yield but neither is late planting.  It is a very difficult decision whether to reseed.

When you do decide to reseed your canola you have even more decisions to make.  Should you kill the stand that is already up before you reseed to prevent uneven crop maturity?  Should you seed with or against the prior seeded crop? If you seed into the current stand should you seed at the full 5 lbs or a less amount?

Troy discusses it all and tells us a little about a on farm reseeding trial that we will follow throughout the year.
