Canola: Bourgault Trial Results of Seeding (volumetric) versus Planting (singulation)
de Gooijer, Curtis
Producers in the Great Northern Plains are showing interest in the singulation of canola to reduce seed costs. The Bourgault Agronomy team conducted research that directly compared volumetric metering to singulation of canola at three different seeding rates. The 2019 results show no yield advantage to singulation, but some advantages to germination. However, the TSW was found to be incorrect which offers more questions then answers for producers.
