Project leader Mark Seymour, of DAFWA, said last year's canola plant density trials showed that canola establishment can fluctuate very widely - from 30 to 80 per cent - with changes in soil moisture, soil temperature and variety... Mark said a density of 20-30 plants/m 2 was adequate for most varieties at most trial sites to achieve good establishment, ensure robust weed competition and produce yields of about 0.8-2 tonnes/ha... Mark said the trials showed optimal plant density for canola in low and medium rainfall zones tended to vary with variety and herbicide tolerance production system...
