Canola TV - Ideal Conditions Encourage New Canadian County Canola Producer




Conditions for canola production have been almost perfect for some growers in Oklahoma and Jerry Lingo of Canadian County says he has high hopes for this years crop. Participants in OSUs Canola Field Tour caught up with Lingo to take a look at his fields and hear his story.

Were looking forward to a great crop ahead of us. We havent had many pest problems this year and everything looks good, Lingo said.

His crop is five and six feet tall this year which is a pleasant surprise after last years drought.

Lingo said he decided to take make the switch from wheat to canola to improve his fields.

I had a few fields that needed to be cleaned up of rye grass, so I thought Id try it on it. I also put it on a couple of places I dont graze cattle just to try and learn how to grow it.

He said prices, also, helped in the decision-making process.

This year prices are almost double what wheat is and so that made it more appealing to plant more acres. I doubled my acres from last year to this year.

Lingo has canola on a little more than 400 hundred acres.

He says hes learned a great deal in just the two years hes been growing canola and expects to learn more.
