VIDEO: How early is too early to seed canola?

A few Manitoba canola growers could, and did, get out on their fields and start seeding as early as March. Whether the reward has outweighed the risk is up for debate.

Anastasia Kubinec of Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives considered that topic among others at the Crop Diagnostic School, in this fourth of a series of nine videos hosted for the Manitoba Co-operator by Crops Guide editor Gord Gilmour.

MAFRI and the University of Manitoba host the Crop Diagnostic School each year at the U of M’s Ian M. Morrison Research Farm at Carman. Farmers and agronomists can attend the one-day hands-on school, which runs for two weeks in July. Watch this site for more video highlights. Time: 0:49
