Give the Sun a Chance to Work

With some areas having canola seeded for almost four weeks, the integrity and viability of the seed has started to be questioned. Much warmer temperatures (mid 20°C’s) are forecast for the coming days. Give the soil time to warm up (three to five days) before making any evaluations or decisions. Soil temperatures will lag behind air temperature so it is important to wait several days and allow the soil a chance to warm. Germination and emergence can happen quickly with warm soil temperatures.
