A Preview: CanoLAB in Pictures


Alberta’s CanoLAB kicked off this week in Olds, Alberta. The event was jam-packed with hands-on sessions involving disease, frost, insects, inputs and Olympics coverage — oh, that last bit was over lunch: totally legit.

If you missed CanoLAB this year, following are some photos for your perusal (plus Saskatchewan and Manitoba have yet to host their events!)  And maybe I’ll take this opportunity to thank some fellow tweeps for their shots included below and uhh, Lyndsey Smith for her help with captions….

Murray Hartman discussing plant population.
John Mayko on diagnosing nutrient deficiencies in canola.
Ralph Lange of Alberta Innovates discussing seedling disease.
Moving on from cold canola, seeding depth and speed to disease.
There are roughly 30 species of insect pests in canola. Here’s a picture of a session on identification of these and innumerable beneficial insects.

Tiny seedlings in soil. One is trying to escape the cup. It will fail.
Learning. About canola. Sometimes captions are difficult to come up with.
