K-State Research & Extension Canola Field Day - Gray County
May 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDTFree
New and experimental varieties will be on display and a discussion will be held on the current growing season. With harvest season approaching, harvest management options will also be discussed. Producers will have opportunities to get their questions answered about making winter canola a viable rotation option in Kansas.
According to K-State canola breeder, Mike Stamm, the production year has been another interesting one, starting with moist conditions for planting last fall and fluctuating temperatures over the winter. The crop is poised for a good harvest, and the aim is to reassure producers that there are many benefits to growing canola in rotation.
The program will be held at a canola field located 2 miles east of Montezuma at the intersection of US-56 and 15 Road. Hear how a local producer is incorporating canola into rotation, learn about new canola varieties, and assess the prospects for canola production in southwest Kansas. Lunch will be sponsored by Helena.n
