Cultivar Considerations for Straight Combining
Researcher: Chris Holzapfel
Project Code: SaskCanola CARP
Final Report: March 2014 Edition
Summary: Straight combining canola can save time and money and result in improved seed quality. However timing of harvest is critical to reduce the risk and magnitude of yield losses from preharvest shattering and pod drop losses. In a recent research project funded by SaskCanola, preliminary results show losses from current hybrids often tend to be quite low, but can still be high when unfavourable weather is combined with delayed harvest or disease levels are high.
