Two canola field tours to be held in south central Kansas April 28

Two canola field tours will be held in Kansas in the next two weeks. The first tour will be on Thursday morning, April 28, near Conway Springs. At this tour producers will see a 30-entry winter canola variety trial. Producers will also observe an on-farm study evaluating the AGCO residue management system for canola and common producer planting practices. Presentations will cover winter canola varieties, how the crop has handled the dry spring weather and fluctuating temperatures, and different canola establishment strategies.

The second tour will be Thursday afternoon, April 28, near Kiowa. Here producers will observe the National Winter Canola Variety Trial, which includes 24 open pollinated varieties and 24 hybrids in side-by-side trials. Producers will also see a second site of the AGCO residue management system and producer planting practices. Presentations will be similar to the first site.

More details will be available next week including start times and directions to the trial sites.
