Canola U Agenda Set- Register Now for May 3rd EventWed, 27 Apr 2011 7:09:01 CDT
If you are thinking about introducing winter canola as a rotational crop for winter wheat on your operation, you have just a few days left to register for the second Canola U event in Oklahoma City on May 3. The same holds true if you have already tried growing winter canola but need to sharpen your management skills. CLICK on the PDF File at the bottom of this story to see the complete agenda planned for Canola U next Tuesday on the west side of Oklahoma City.
The event, sponsored by DEKALB and High Plains Journal, will feature both field and classroom instruction in an informal, educational format. A variety of new topics not offered in the first Canola U event held in January will be covered, including a detailed assessment of available winter canola varieties adapted for growing conditions in the Southern Plains, fertilization and insect control, and no-till seeding methods for planting canola into wheat stubble.
In addition, more detailed and advanced instruction will be provided for modification of planting and harvesting equipment, as well as marketing and contracting options, than was covered in the first Canola U event. If you attended the first Canola U event in January, you will want to attend the second event, as the information presented on May 3 will be quite different than that presented in the first Canola U event.
And, if you didn't get a chance to attend the first event, the second event will offer you a chance to get up-to-speed with your winter canola growing skills and an opportunity to have your questions addressed by leading figures in the industry, including academic researchers from Oklahoma State University and Kansas State University, experienced local and regional growers who have made winter canola a profitable part of their farming operations, and a wide range of seed company and regional processor representatives.
There is still time to register for the second Canola U event- click here for the Canola U website to register.
