The Canola King Challenge in its 11th 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, reported Mat Dennison, General Manager of Prairie Soil Services.
The Champions were awarded the use of a brand new customized 2017 Chevrolet Silverado for one year.
Out of the producers that participated in the 2017 challenge, Lindgren Farms recorded the top Gross with $853.39 per acre. Even though Lindgren Farms won the challenge, all participants deserve recognition for their achievements and hard work that was put into their 2017 crop which grew some amazing yields on half our typical rainfall, reported Mat Dennison.
The Saskatchewan Provincial average for 2017 was at 34 bushels per acre and with a 10 year average of 31 bu/ac, these outstanding producers proved that despite challenges from Mother Nature, 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 strived for in the annual “Field of Dreams” project conducted by Prairie Soil Services
