Research shows canola oil can improve glycemic control in people with type-2 diabetes. Canola Eat Well is working with the Canadian Diabetes Association to promote this health benefit.
We know canola can yield more. Average yields are just a fraction of what current hybrids achieve in plots and on top-yielding fields. So how can growers make better use of this genetic potential?
The Canola Digest editor looks at four ideas that captured his attention at Canola Discovery Forum: Get smarter about sclerotinia. Map acres that never make money. Select the right root for the job. GRADE the validity of evidence.
Canola Discovery Forum, October 25-27 in Winnipeg, brought together 150-200 researchers, growers, industry representatives and extension staff for presentations and discussions to discover canola research needs and knowledge gaps. Here are my observations.
Canola can yield 100 bu./ac. with the right soil and weather, but targeting the highest yield potential is often a sure path to bankruptcy. A better target is profit — with consideration for individual circumstances and appetite for risk.
