K-State Research and Extension is presenting a canola informational meeting on March 6, 2018 from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in Great Bend. The meeting will be held at the American Ag Credit Building, 5634 10th Street, Great Bend, KS.

According to Mike Stamm, K-State canola breeder, “We’ve seen some new interest in canola production around Great Bend so it is important to bring growers up to speed on varieties, seeding, and harvest methods. We hope to draw interest from surrounding counties as we feel canola can provide benefits in crop rotation here in central Kansas.”

The meeting will highlight the basics of growing canola all the way from planting to harvest. Speakers for the event include:

  • Mike Stamm, KSU Canola Breeder
  • Lucas Haag, Northwest Area Extension Agronomist

Archer Daniels Midland representatives will also be present to discuss canola marketing.

Complimentary rolls, coffee, and juice will be provided by the Great Bend Coop and American Ag Credit. The Cottonwood Extension District is hosting the event. Please RSVP no later than 12:00 pm, March 5 either by phone at (620) 793-1910 or by email at
