Winter canola school set for March 9 in Harper
A winter canola risk management school will be held in Harper County on March 9 starting at 10:00 a.m.
After a couple of years of challenging weather, the winter canola crop of 2016 is shaping up to be one of the better ones we’ve seen. Good fall stands coupled with a warmer and wetter-than-normal winter tend to favor high yield potential. K-State Research and Extension wants to provide the tools necessary for canola producers to be successful with this year’s crop.
The school will be held in Harper at the Harper County Fair building. Morning presentations will be followed by a lunch, sponsored by the Danville Coop. A short field trip to local canola fields will follow lunch. The school will end by mid-afternoon.
Topics to be presented in the morning session include canola varieties and winter survival, what management is important in the spring, and insect identification and management.
