Seed Rate Trial - Compares three different seeding rates of canola on yield, plant stand, and post-harvest plant stand. Row Spacing – 10” vs 12” - Compares 10” to 12” row spacing and identify effects of each spacing on yield and plant stand in canola. Nitrogen Placement - Identify differences in canola when nitrogen is placed in a mid row band versus in a side-band. Low Seed Row Phosphorus Trial – This trial compares a low application rate of seed row phosphorus in canola using a split strategy of applying some phosphorus in the seed row (SR) and the rest in the mid row band (MRB™).
- Phosphorus Placement - This trial was conducted to identify differences in canola when phosphorus is placed in the seed row versus in a side-band when using a dual-shank opener, having nitrogen in the side-band (SB) or in a mid row band (MRB™).
