K-State Research & Extension Canola Field Day - Kingman Co
May 20, 2019 @ 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 the canola variety trials south of Norwich. From the KS-2 and SE 160thStreet intersection, drive ½ mile east. The plots are on the south side of the road. See the National Winter Canola Variety Trial (NWCVT), learn about new winter canola varieties on the market, and hear how local producers are using canola in rotation. Refreshments will be provided.
