I always question the mortality rate they always claim for canola. I have never actually done a plant count but have found 5# is too heavy, would guess a good 85-90% survival rate. Found since we stopped putting sulfur down with the seed and just the phos, we have had better emergence, thinking the extra fertilizer going through the hoses and then laying in the seed trench did a lot of harm. Wonder if that's why planters have a higher survival rate? The less seed I can put in the ground and still grow a crop the better, seed prices are just going to keep going up, why sow at 5# if 2-3 will do?
It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
