The Canola Council of Canada has two new smartphone-friendly calculators — one for seeding rate and another for a target plant stand.
The target plant stand calculator has several criteria that you select for your farm: Uniformity of the stand you expect on your farm, early-season frost risk, expected weed and pest situation, and length of growing season.
The seeding rate calculator also has several criteria such as 1,000 seed weight; target plant density, and estimated survival rate. In addition to the calculators, the website has resources on topics such as conducting plant counts, recording emergence data, and factors affecting emergence.
