Topdressing canola: How to maximize the benefits

To maximize the yield potential of winter canola, producers should topdress with nitrogen, sulfur, and possibly boron in the winter. Producers should make topdress applications with consideration for environmental conditions, nutrients needed, and application method.

Factors involved in winter survival of canola in Kansas

Winter survival of canola in Kansas is a complicated issue. Stand losses can be caused by one or more abiotic and biotic factors. Learn more about those factors and how to assess your winter canola stand in this article from K-State canola breeder Mike Stamm and farming systems specialist Ignacio Ciampitti.

Exceptional winter canola yields observed in 2021

Winter canola yields attained superior levels at testing sites in Kansas in 2021. Dense canopies, filled with an abundance of seed pods and flowering late into the growing season, were witnessed at multiple locations. Careful variety selection is very important for successful winter canola production.

Army cutworm reaching treatment thresholds in winter canola

With the onset of warmer temperatures, winter canola is breaking dormancy and army cutworms are now present in fields across Kansas. Significant army cutworm pressure has been observed in some areas of Kansas. Learn about the treatment thresholds and the correct insecticides for control in this article.

Spring update on winter canola conditions

The 2021-2022 winter crop season is shaping up to be one to remember for canola growers. From mounting precipitation concerns to rapidly fluctuating temperatures, one would think that the deck is stacked against this year’s winter crops. Low soil moisture made establishment challenging, fortunately, the October rains and warmer temperature allowed later emergence. However, due to drought, the crop jumped into survival mode, meaning it rapidly moved to bolting to attempt to survive the current dry conditions. Only time will tell how well the current canola crop will yield. We’ve seen the resiliency of canola carry it through challenging weather conditions before, and one significant rainfall event can change the narrative rather quickly.

2022 Canola Field Days - May 12

The K-State Research and Extension canola program will hosts two field day events on May 12. The latest research, variety, and production information on winter canola will be featured at 2 different locations on May 12. The field days are an opportunity to see winter canola variety trials and producers’ fields. Experimental and new varieties will be on display and information will be shared about K-State’s hybrid parent line development program.

What factors influence the survival of winter canola?

In last week’s eUpdate, we have discussed the impact of delayed emergence on canola winter survival. This week, we examine a few other factors that can influence winter survival. Winter survival is complicated as stand losses can be caused by one or more abiotic and biotic stresses.

K-State plans winter canola field tours on Nov. 6

Kansas State University, Scoular, and the Great Plains Canola Association will host field tours in Kingman and Sumner counties on Nov. 6 in Kansas to highlight the marketing of winter canola and fall management decisions. These field tours are open to the public and free to attend.

After a better start in 2023, what factors influence the survival of winter canola?

Winter canola planting conditions were much improved in the fall of 2023. While much of central Kansas remains at some level of drought intensity, the majority of the canola crop was seeded following timely rains, leading to optimum growth. Rapid and timely emergence is critical for attaining the right amount of growth before winter.

Spring freeze effects on winter canola

The last week of March saw temperatures drop below 24F for eight hours, with a low of 14F, at the South Central Experiment Field near Hutchinson, KS. The chance of observing freeze injury was quite high with the canola crop at the early reproductive stage. What will the impacts of this freeze be this year?
