Seed-placed phosphorus and sulphur fertilizers: effect on canola plant stand and yield
Hybrid canola has a high requirement for phosphorus (P) and sulphur (S). Conventional P and S fertilizers differ in their risk of ammonia and salt toxicity and can significantly reduce canola plant stands if applied in the ...
Control of gene-stacked canola by alternative herbicides
Unintentional herbicide resistance gene stacking in canola may alter the sensitivity of volunteers to herbicides of alternative modes of action commonly used for their control. Greenhouse experiments were conducted to ...
Effect of seeding date, environment, and storage on canola seed vigour
Seed vigour has been identified as one of the leading factors limiting stand establishment and yield in western Canada. Field studies at Scott, SK demonstrated that seed derived from Fall and April-sown canola produced ...
Cultivar considerations and pod sealants for straight-combining canola in Saskatchewan
While the recommended and preferred harvest practice in western Canada is to swath canola (Brassica napus L.), there is appreciable interest in straight-combining this crop. In a recent study, five cultivars were harvested ...
A decade of herbicide-resistant crops in Canada
This review examines some agronomic, economic, and environmental impacts of herbicide-resistant (HR) canola, soybean, corn, and wheat in Canada after 10 years of growing HR cultivars. The rapid adoption of HR canola and ...
Hairy canola deters flea beetle feeding
Flea beetle, chiefly Phyllotreta crucifrerae, behaviour and feeding on lines of Brassica napus canola with elevated levels of trichomes on true leaves were compared with feeding on leaves of parent seedlings. The beetles ...
