2015 Winter Canola Commercial Scale Research in South Carolina

Rubisco Seeds’ hybrid winter canola commercial strip trial was planted with a Twin Row Monosem planter on October 21, 2014. Plots were nearly killed with an unusual November 19th freeze, with a low of 21 deg. F, at the cotyledon stage. Definite difference in resilience of some of the hybrids, being evaluated to an early freeze. The dryland winter canola hybrid plot winner was Inspiration which coincidentally looked the best after the November freeze also. The strip trial was harvested on June 15, 2015, with a Case IH 7088 fitted with a MacDon Flex Draper FD75-S, 30 ft. header. The temperature on harvesting day was 100 deg. Fahrenheit.
