Talking Crops with Monsanto Agronomist Michael Marlow

Fri, 27 Aug 2010 6:29:00 CDT

Talking Crops with Monsanto Agronomist Michael Marlow The upside for winter canola in Oklahoma continues to be significant- Michael Marlow says the prospects for winter canola in the state the next few years is nothing short of amazing. He cites several reasons why canola is making progress in becoming accepted by wheat producers to rotate with their traditional hard red winter wheat crop. At the top of his list are the improving genetics that have been put in place in the last couple of years- he says add to that the Risk Management Agency is finally offering quality crop insurance options for canola, which helps folks feel more comfortable in giving canola a try.

For the spring planted crops- there are dry spots in the state- but overall the corn and soybeans he has been watching in Oklahoma are doing well. He believes that the yield potential is good except for those dry pockets which simply have not gotten rain since early July.
