Deformed Canola

So I have noticed this for a few yrs now. Neighbors canola looks like wheat stubble after harvest. Perfectly straight 6 inch stalks. My left over stalks are a twisted contorted mess with twisted branching, secondary branching right at the ground, 3 or 4 of them. Stalks look like little trees after the leaves are blown off.

Like this;



Not seeing nay yield problems just wondering why.

That is very common when you have low plant counts.

Low plant count makes big bushy plants.

Don't think I have low plant counts, still seeding 5lbs and rows are all germinated. You can barely walk in there after its cut so its good and thick.

Glad to hear you're getting it off! Is this the same stuff you had that other thread about? I would agree with the others, I think a combination of a thinner plant stand and stress.


That's actually quite a nice picture you took, calendar worthy!

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!

If that's what you're getting from 5 lbs per acre I wouldn't cut back on your rate.

Some straight cut canola varieties in my opinion is made to branch out like that so it is more woven together so that is can take lots of wind when it's ripe without shattering. I think that is one of the things that makes some vatieties so shatter resistant.

It’s obvious in the photo the plant count is down. We’re you seeding marbles like a lot of the seed came this year?

It also don’t help maturity if your fighting that end of it.
