Winter Hardy Canola

By virtue of its growth habit, winter survival of canola in continental-type climate regions remains a significant challenge to the expansion of the area planted for this crop in the U.S. While there are significant differences in winter survival observed in canola from different breeding programs, crop production practices, and agronomy have a significant role to play in mitigating this challenge. Rubisco Seeds is continually developing multiple seeding techniques and production programs to help weatherproof this crop. The use of planters, wider row spacing, and targeted hybrid canola plant populations have enhanced the survival of the crop in no-till and conventional environments.
