The Canola Agronomy Research in Western Australia bulletin presents a summary of research results from the DPIRD Tactical break crop agronomy project. It also includes research results from the CSIRO Achieving stable and high canola agronomy across the low, medium and high-rainfall areas of WA project. These projects are both supported by co-investment from the Grains Research and Development Corporation.
Key research themes addressed in the bulletin:
- Canola variety options
- Time of sowing
- Crop density
- Establishment of canola, including row width, precision seeding and seeding depth
- Using retained seed
- Re-seeding poorly established canola crops
- Timing and rates of nitrogen fertilisation
- Low fertiliser inputs in low rainfall areas
- Critical nutrient levels in canola
- Yield losses to aphids
- Herbicides use in canola
- Direct heading canola
- Grazing canola
