Field Day


The Council's Field Day offers growers a guided tour of the research trials involved in the Minnesota Canola Production Centre (CPC). Hosted by the CPC site agronomist, the tour features a comprehensive, in-depth look at the year's research trials. For 2019, the Council's 22nd year of CPC management, research trials included: variety and systems comparison; seed shattering; canola management strategies to improve return on investment; direct harvest vs. swathing; nitrogen fertility rate, source, and timing; canola tolerance to sulfentrazone; singulation and row spacing; singulation phosphorus source; and micronutrients to enhance canola yield.

Field day was held Wednesday, July 10 along with the always popular Canola Hackers Golf Scramble. The CPC tour began at 10:00 a.m. and was followed by a burger basket lunch at Oakcrest Golf Club. The Canola Hackers Golf Scramble began at 12:30.

The 2019 CPC was located at Northern Resources Cooperative in Roseau, MN.
