canoLAB is all new for 2014 – we’re going back to school at Olds College!

Proudly hosted by: Canola Council of Canada & Alberta Canola Producers

Participants will be divided into groups of 20 and will take part in 8 sessions; 4 x 50 minute sessions and 4 x 25 minute sessions. Instructors will be among Western Canada’s top researchers and extension people.

CanoLAB runs from 8:30am to 4:00pm daily. Each days is identical.

Frost & Recovery (50 mins) – assess canola plants that have been exposed to various degrees of frost damage and determine which plants will survive, which ones won’t and whether you should re-seed.

Tuning Up Your Sweep Net (50 mins) – identify what is in your sweep net – and not just the pests, but the beneficial insects including the pollinators. Plus take a closer look at Lygus Bug staging and economic thresholds

Bolting & Beyond (50 mins) – evaluate canola before and after the bolting stage for sclerotinia risk and timing as well as nutrient deficiencies and the potential for top dressing.

Your last $10 (50 mins) – if you were going to spend $10/acre more on your canola crop - what would you spend it on? This session will look at some of the traditional and some of the new options available.

Where’s the Plants? (25 mins) – examine the factors that cause your plants stands to be lower than your targets including seed placement and disease.

Seed Placed Fertilizer (25 mins) – learn how much is too much and for what types of soil… get your hands dirty and see if you can still do soil texturing.

Recurring & Emerging Issues (25 mins) – are these canola pests old news or new to you? A look at clubroot and swede midge.

Ready…Set…Seed (25 mins) – is that seeding equipment really ready to plant canola or is it just hooked to a tractor? Get a quick run-down of what to watch for from the tank to the opener to get your crop off to the best start.

Instructors include: Ag Canada research scientists, Canola Council agronomists and top-notch extension people from government, industry and post-secondary institutions.
