Recent trials have shown that spring sowing of winter canola can provide increased returns compared to a summer fallow... Spring-sown winter canola at Dunkeld pictured just before grazing in summer 2011 (left) and at flowering in spring 2012 (right).. For a winter variety, this means plants can be sown in spring, grazed during summer and then grow and recover in the lead-up to winter...

Keep an eye on your canola for diseases in 2015.. We want growers to have a fungicide management plan in place for when new actives come onto the market and we are also encouraging growers to change varieties based on resistance groups... Dr Marcroft says at the end of the season, growers should pull some canola plants out of the ground and cut the stem open to see if they have blackleg symptoms...

Unseasonal hot weather reduced the yield potential of many Western Australian canola crops this year, but research could help deliver varieties with better heat tolerance in the future... "WA canola crops - particularly in the northern and eastern grainbelt - suffered from heat stress this season, and this is likely to happen again in future seasons," UWA Institute of Agriculture and School of Plant Biology researcher Sheng Chen said... Dr Chen said it was too early to determine which canola lines had superior heat tolerance, but independent research led by Wallace Cowling at the UWA Institute of Agriculture had identified some heat tolerant lines of Brassica rapa , an ancestor of canola grown as an oilseed or vegetable crop in some countries...

Pre-planting strategies to minimise blackleg risk.. Dr Steve Marcroft says fungicide tolerant blackleg isolates can cause stem canker and potentially yield loss... If crop monitoring in the previous year showed signs of blackleg and yield loss, Dr Marcroft says growers should look at their canola varieties' blackleg rating and consider how close they sow their canola to the previous year's stubble...

CSIRO's Dr Michael Robertson said the results of a consultant survey and comparisons with experimental yields indicate a sizeable production gap between above-average and below-average-yielding growers in the high-rainfall zone... Dr Roper said more research was needed to clarify the long-term use of on-row sowing on soil nutrition, organic matter, soil structure and soil-borne diseases on water-repellent soil... "Dual-purpose crops have the capacity to increase overall profitability and productivity by 25 to 75 per cent compared with grain-only crops," Dr Bell said...
