Seeding small

You can’t control the weather. Seed when you can. Remember, more than half the canola acres last year were seeded after May 20.

Spray instead. Early weed control pays big time. If too wet to seed, it might not be too wet to spray — but apply at warmer parts of the day.

Clingy clubroot. Muddy fields increase the amount of soil on equipment. Think about the clubroot risk.

Seed safe. A short seeding window can mean long hours and extra tension. If stress is becoming unmanageable, use the Farm Stress lines: Saskatchewan 1-800-667-4442 ; Alberta 1-877-303-2642 ; Manitoba 1-866-367-3276
