K-State Research & Extension Canola Field Day- Reno County
May 24 @ 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 begins at the South Central Kansas Experiment Field, 10620 South Dean Road, Hutchinson. The NWCVT and K-State variety trials will be on display. Learn about new winter canola varieties on the market. Attendees will hear about a new canola establishment study in cooperation with industry. Refreshments will be provided.
