DynAgra’s Get More Bushels Canola Super Crop Plot was seeded on May 17, 2010. It was a beautiful day to be out in the field, and getting things started for the 2010 growing season. The soil moisture and temperature were ideal, all around great seeding conditions!

The plot was seeded with a 2008 52 foot 5000 Flexi Coil Airdrill with a 350 bu three tank air cart, ten inch shank spacing and four inch seed spread.

It was seeded at a constant speed of 4.5 miles per hour. We seeded 11 varieties of canola at 5 pounds per acre, along with 77 pounds of actual N (Anhydrous Ammonia, NH3) and 140 pounds of 20-20-15-0 (seed blend). Each strip contains 3.15 acres. There were a total of 24 strips seeded; each variety was replicated within the plot. We also included three technologies that can be added to your canola crops to increase your yield potential, they include, DynAgraVRT, Avail phosphorous coating, and PodCeal.

The plot was seeded on wheat stubble, which had a pre seed burn down with one liter per acre of black label Cheminova on May 15, 2010.
