Farmers Reminded To Keep It Clean

The Canola Council of Canada (CCC) has a few tips for farmers as harvest approaches.
 
Sean Senko is a CCC agronomy specialist.
 
"If you're using glyphosate, you have to make sure the seed moisture is down to below 30 per cent, which isn't something we normally measure in field so we like to equate it to 50 to 60 per cent seed colour change. You don't want to be applying before that and at that stage the seed will be below 30 per cent moisture."
 
Senko notes harvest is also a great time to scout for diseases.
 
Farmers are reminded to follow the Keep It Clean guidelines to ensure crops are market-ready. Senko says over 90 per cent of Canadian canola is exported.
