  • Seed Rate Trial - Compare three different seeding rates of canola on yield, plant stand, and post-harvest plant stand.
     
  • Row Spacing– 10” vs 20” - Compare 10” row spacing to 20” row spacing and identify effects on yield and plant stand in canola.
     
  • Row Spacing – 10” vs 12” - Compare 10” to 12” row spacing and identify effects on yield and plant stand in canola.
     
  • Potash Trial - See if the addition of potash (K) and it’s placement in the seed row (SR) or in the mid row band (MRB) makes a difference on canola yield and plant stand.
     
  • Phosphorus Placement – Seed Row vs. Side-Band (Hot Band Trial) - 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 (SR) or in a mid row band (MRB).
     
  • Nitrogen Placement – Mid Row Band vs. Side-Band - Identify differences in canola when nitrogen is placed in a side-band versus in a mid row band.
     
  • Low Seed Row Phosphorus Trial - Compare 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).
