CANOLA QUIZ – Canola counts

Canola Counts is a new crowd-sourced survey from the Canola Council of Canada (CCC). The survey tool will map canola plant densities and emergence percentages while helping to drive the adoption of regular plant counts as an important step in achieving target yields. This quiz will get you primed to count! See more information at the end of the quiz.

WIN A RING! The first 150 people to complete this week’s quiz and enter their shipping details (at the end) will receive a new two-square-feet plant count ring courtesy of Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers.
