All you need is one canola plant every 1.5 feet to get good yield. If you have this I would leave it.

So I just went and did some more scouting. There are a handlful of established plants per sq m. Some still breaking through the top crust. Some rows better than others, some with nothing visible. Dug down in some of these. Found some blue seed cracked open and nothing came out, seem aborted. In the dust there are shriveled but not dead seedings. Three very different stages of crop here with 2/3rds of the seeds I found unlikley to get established properly with no rain in the forecast 10 days out now. At 2 inches down is a hard pan with good moisture underneath.

My inclination is this isn't going to make it. I had a similar stand in 2017 on a field when it was so dry and I left that stand and watched all summer trying to fill in the gaps and the canola ran about 24 bu.

I doubt if there’s anything you can plant in that situation that would net you more than 24 bushels of canola with zero work or expense. You might have to spray flee beetles for a few rounds on the perimeter which would cost a bit, but hey, thunderstorms are free and no one predicts them into the future. I think you will have a lot more plants than you can find today.

You can ponder a hundred different scenarios and drive yourself crazy with all the what ifs. But ultimately it's like almost ever thing in farming, you won't know what the right move was until the year is over. There really is no right or wrong move, just do what your gut tells you. Sometimes doing nothing is better than doing everything you can.

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!

Then you are also guaranteed to be wrong.

Farming is the only game in town where half right half wrong is considered a win.

Is there a chance that some seeds will still come up, seems there is always some stragglers. Canola has got to be really really bad in order to make a re-seed pay. I have had a LOT of battles with flea-beetles over the years and some of the thin stands ended up doing the best at harvest. The only year I re-seeded was 2015 from frost, that was a no-doubter...
