WinField Offers Canola Farmers Several Seed Options

Canola farmers will have several seed options this fall from WinField with their Croplan varieties. Recently Radio Oklahoma Ag News Network Farm News Director Ron Hays caught up with Justin Stejskal with WinField, one of the exhibitors at the recent 10th Annual Canola Conference. Click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear Stejskal's comments. Overall, he said Croplan varieties performed well in 2014 despite the difficult year.   

"This winter posed a lot of different challenges to us with the drought, with winter hardiness and we were able to come in a very consistent basis and a lot of times toward the top of the pack there," Stejskal said. "So you can look at a lot of different plot results, get a lot of results across the board, but the main thing right now is to look at consistency across the board."

Going in the 2015 crop year, WinField is currently offering three different Croplan varieties for Oklahoma farmers.

The most popular variety is the HyClass 115W. Stejskal said this is by far the most popular variety because of the variety's stress tolerance and pH tolerance as evidence through the Oklahoma State University pH trial a couple of years ago. He said on a consistency basis this variety is hard to beat. He said this variety performs well in a no-till situation and it carries the SURT (sulfonylurea residual tolerant) trait. This is a mid-maturity variety.

The second variety HyClass 125W carries more yield potential in a better yielding environment. Stejskal said this variety is not the best for a no-till environment. This variety carries the SURT (sulfonylurea residual tolerant) trait.

The third variety is HyClass 154W. This is a high-management, high yield potential variety. Stejskal said this is a later maturing variety. Stejskal said this variety fits well in a no till situation with 30 inches rows with larger seed. This is not a SURT variety.

As farmers make their planting decisions for the 2015 crop their will be plenty of seed available. Stejskal said they have two plants that are bagging and treating seed right now.
He said they will begin shipping seed in the next few months. They are taking orders right now and many of their dealers are offering specials.
