ICYMI- Josh Bushong with Ron Hays In the Field on Saturday morning, July 19, 2014Mon, 21 Jul 2014 05:58:24 CDT
Water was the single largest factor to impact this past growing season's canola production. Oklahoma State University Extension Winter Canola Specialist Josh Bushong says farmers experienced both sides of the coin from not enough water when trying to establish the crop last fall, then too much rain from May into June as farmers were getting into harvest.
"Every producer I have talked said this has been the worst year by far," Bushong said.
This year marks ten years of farmers growing canola in Oklahoma and for most this was the hardest year they have had with the oil seed crop.
