Applying enough fertilizer to maximize profit potential and taking steps to reducing nutrient losses will improve canola yield per tonne of fertilizer applied. This will have a positive effect for both economic and environmental sustainability
Biodiversity of habitat across the farm can increase populations of bees and beneficials, which can increase yields and provide a natural check on insect populations. Biodiversity through crop rotations can reduce disease severity and expand management options for weeds.
Harvest management steps, including cutting later to realize a canola crop’s full yield potential and taking steps to reduce in-field and storage losses, mean more canola per acre goes to market. It has a big impact on real production per acre.
Customers are asking for sustainably-produced food, so some food companies are sourcing some ingredients from producers who follow sustainable production practices.
