Spring canola brings benefits to Pacific Northwest growers.
Spring canola is usually grown in annual cropping systems or under irrigation. It can enhance your crop rotation in several ways.
- Wheat yields are generally improved after canola.
- A range of herbicide traits increase options for weed control.
- Canola tolerates low-pH soils better than many other crops.
- Clearfield canola varieties can be grown in fields with a history of Group 2 herbicide use.
- Canola’s long flowering period means that an untimely frost will cause limited damage.
- Canola brings nitrogen from subsoil depths and deposits it at the soil surface as residue.
There are many spring canola varieties not listed here. For spring variety yield data please see our Yield Trials.
