Good Start to Canola Crop Rejuvenates Support for Canola College 2016

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 16:55:57 CST

Good Start to Canola Crop Rejuvenates Support for Canola College 2016 Farmers are much more optimistic about the potential of their canola crop this year. Jeff Scott, a farmer from Pond Creek, Oklahoma serves as President of both Great Plains Canola and the U.S. Canola Association. He said this has been the best growing season since 2012. The crop has received good moisture and the winter has been mild. To finish out this year's crop, he recommends farmers do enough that it can produce good yields, so it can maximize profitability.

“Crop had a chance to get well-established under good moisture conditions and progress, so I feel like we’re sitting in really good condition right now,” Scott said.

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays interviewed Scott at Canola College in Enid on Thursday. Scott was answering questions about the crop and the timeline for effective crop management between now though harvest.   In presenting to more than 200 in attendance, he said the better start to the growing season has brought back enthusiasm for canola.

“Mother Nature’s working with us,” Scott said. “Let’s get through a good harvest and I think that will start bringing some numbers back up.”

Scott is finding a lot of farmers wished they would have planted more canola last fall.

"Good weather conditions and not being in a drought, like we’ve been in the last three years, has really opened some eyes,” Scott said.
