Get to know your field and get to know it well. That’s the root of understanding any problem you have in your canola crop. According to Canola Council of Canada Senior Agronomist Doug Moisey there is no better approach to monitoring the health of your crop than to get in and get your hands dirty. The truth is, the more familiar you are with your crop, the more apt you’ll be to recognize when something goes wrong. That scouting should start as soon as your crop emerges and should continue most frequently throughout that early growth stage in order to get ahead of any potential issue during that vulnerable phase.
In this episode of the Canola School, Doug Moisey brings viewers through the proper approach to diagnosing stand establishment issues in canola and shows us why there is no substitute for getting dirty.
