Four the week

Flea beetles crucifer small

Flea circus. Flea beetles love warm weather and fresh young canola. When scouting, assess the whole crop, not just field margins, and spray if leaf loss exceeds 25% for most plants and feeding continues.

Efficacy effort. Emerging canola is not highly competitive, yet. To get the most out of weed control, follow efficacy tips specific to products for each HT system.

21 days of intimacy. Take regular walks in (or “with”, if you prefer) canola fields to see if the crop needs attention over these critical three weeks.

“10, 10 plants per square foot, ah ah ah!” The Count from Sesame Street would love spring scouting. Plant counts and an assessment of the stand can tell you a lot about the seeding job.
