Oklahoma Passes 100,000 Acre Mark in Canola Planting for 2011 Harvest

Thu, 07 Oct 2010 9:42:30 CDT

Oklahoma Passes 100,000 Acre Mark in Canola Planting for 2011 Harvest Most of the winter canola that will be planted this fall is now in the ground- and many of the fields planted were planted early and have emerged. OSU Canola Specialist Mark Boyles says that the best estimate that he and his colleagues have been able to come up with is that something over 100,000 acres of canola are in the ground to be harvested in 2011.

Boyles says that we have gotten dry in most of the areas that have had interest in canola- and we badly need a good rain to get some fields emerged- and allow farmers to finish up planting acres were the ground got too dry.

While there was discussion of even more acres going into Canola back in the summer- the combination of dryness in some areas and better wheat prices late August and into September probably kept some acres in winter wheat for yet another year.
