• Heat at flowering and hail at late flowering and podding can be highly damaging to yield. Lost pods are yield that cannot be recovered, and hail that knocks back a crop at this stage often doesn’t give the crop enough time to compensate and produce a good crop before fall frost. Growers often look for rescue treatments to revive the…

  • We had a “follow up question” to last week's article "Hail damage: Economic loss depends on cro stage." The grower was asking about foliar nutrition after a hail storm. He had 2” of rain a week after a hailstorm and he feels that a foliar application could be worthwhile. The hail hit canola at the 5-6 leaf stage with a…

  • Heat — Foliar boron applied at flowering has been tested on canola in Ontario to as a way to prevent blossom blast during summer heat waves. Four years of grower field studies from 2008-11 found inconclusive results. Hail — Nutrient and fungicide top dress treatments have also been promoted to help heal and restart canola after hail. We don't have…

  • Before trying any treatment on hail damaged fields, give the crop time to recover. It may recover nicely on its own, likely with later maturity but with a large percentage of its yield potential intact. Or, if the growing points or most of the leaves are stripped off, the plants may not recover sufficiently to warrant further investment in the…

  • Canola hit with light to moderate hail at up to 20% flower may recover with only minimal to moderate yield loss. Plants will flower longer and compensate. More severe damage warrants a call to the insurance adjuster…
