In the Field- Canola Harvest Hits the Halfway Point- Gene Neuens of PCOM Explains

Sun, 23 Jun 2013 07:26:05 CDT

In the Field- Canola Harvest Hits the Halfway Point- Gene Neuens of PCOM Explains Oklahoma canola producers are busily harvesting the 2013 crop and Gene Neuens of PCOM says harvest is about halfway done. He says producers south of I-40 are mostly finished with farmers near Kingfisher, Enid, and Bison getting into full swing. He said most of the crop in those areas has been swathed and farmers are now picking it up.

Neuens said that swathing the crop seems to have become the preferred method of harvest across the state.

"They can get it laid down and get it picked up before wheat harvest really starts and get it out of the way. They know they can do it. We had some guys spray this year, but they ended up right in the middle of harvest. Spray it with a dessicant then you end up right in the middle of wheat harvest trying to pick it up."

Overall, yields have been better than perhaps first expected, due to the realtively coo and wet May which allowed Canola to bloom longer and set late pods.

Neuens was the guest of Ron Hays on his weekly TV segment called In the Field. Click on the Play Button in the video box below to watch that segment with Ron and Gene.
