Canola, VR 9562 GC
July 16, 2015. Aside from yield results, regular scouting of the trial fields is the most important part of the Proven Performance Trials program. Collecting and comparing observations allows agronomists to note visual differences between varieties as well as examine individual plants for differences in height, tillering, flowering stage, disease, presence of lodging and general stand vigour.
Timely comparisons throughout the growing season allow Proven Seed experts in the field to understand which varieties may perform better during adverse summer conditions, such as the hot, dry weather across the Prairies this year. This type of insight is important to our CPS retailers and their customers as they’re deciding on seed varieties for the following year.
Proven Agronomy Lead Gary Sollid says leaves are the engine of the canola plant and it’s important to check your engine. “Having a strong engine means the potential to rev up the yield is high,” says Sollid. “I recently observed a very large solar panel on a VR 9562 GC napus canola plant in eastern Saskatchewan almost 14-inches long and 8-inches wide.”View More Proven Weekly Posts
