PUSHING CANOLA YIELDS TO THE LIMITS
FEDORCHUK FARMS LTD. CROWNED 2018 CANOLA KING
The Canola King Challenge in its 12th year is a great opportunity for local producers to test new management practices and strategies in an attempt to achieve the highest canola yields possible. This includes, but is not limited to, genetics, seed treatments, chemistries, advanced fertility with the use of micronutrients, fungicides, enhanced technologies and agronomic consulting.
The Champions are awarded the use of a brand new Chevrolet Silverado for one year.
With the Saskatchewan Provincial average at 39.3 bushels per acre in 2018 and with a 10 year average of 33.5 bu/ac, the outstanding 2018 producers proved that higher yields are possible when maximizing productivity, more than doubling the provincial average. This in turn reduces the per bushel cost of production; a concept continually striven for in the annual “Field of Dreams” project conducted by Prairie Soil Services.
