How glucosinolates (GSLs) benefit canola to the detriment of the following crop. A recent blog we posted has generated a great deal of interest among canola growers. In it, we revealed that a defensive mechanism common to brassicas protects canola against soilborne disease, yet works to the detriment of the following crop. Today, we take […]
Canola reduces biological activity in the soil. So, what can be done to help the following crop? Growers and researchers have long observed that crops following canola in a rotation tend to demonstrate reduced yield, compared to the results when seeded behind another crop. So, what is the reason behind this? It can largely be […]
In flowering crops, there is a clearly established link between the pollination/ fertilization process, and yield potential. That is because pollination, fertilization and early fruit development have a direct impact on three of the key yield metrics: The number of pods/heads per plant The number of seeds per pod/head Seed weight So, it stands to […]
