Video: Canola Evaluations: Stand Counts and Planting Depth


In this video, Pioneer Field Agronomist Kristie Sundeen walks you through a postemergence canola evaluation and how to take a stand count to determine your plants per square foot. She shows you a few different ways to take stand counts, including the hula hoop method. Traditionally, canola only has a 50% - 70% survivability rate, so keep that in mind during your stand counts. Kristie also shows you how to safely dig up canola seeds to analyze planting depth, and investigate any seed death, compaction, or planter issues that may have happened during planting, as well as determining your seeding depth after digging out a plant.
