CanolaTV- Talking with Ron Sholar, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Oilseed Commission

Dr. Ron Sholar was the longtime oilseed specialist for OSU Extension- and after retirement from that position, has answered the call to serve the canola industry in the state of Oklahoma as the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Oilseed Commission.

We talk about the early days of trying to grow canola in the southern plains versus now- and Sholar talks with us on this edition of Canola TV about the challenges of growing canola as OSU brought it south and began the process of getting it to work in the southern great plains. Sholar says the biggest problem with canola as it first arrived in Oklahoma, as the early varieties were simply not winter hardy. He also pointed to the challenge of handling crop properly at harvest time.

We also talked with Sholar about his relatively new role as the executive director of the Oklahoma Oilseed Commission. Sholar says one key objective for the Commission is to help facilitate the expansion of canola planting in Oklahoma. We talked with Ron Sholar in Canadian County at one of the Canola Field Tour stops in April 2012.
