A second pre-seed burn, glyphosate tips, scout for flea beetles

Issues of the week

May 19, 2010 — After a week of full-out seeding, canola seeded early last week is already emerging. Weed control is critical, especially if growers didn’t do a pre-seed burnoff. Weeds, including volunteer canola, have been emerging over the past month, in many cases, and some plants are large. Control only gets harder and the damage more costly to canola yield and profitability  the longer those weeds are left unsprayed.
