Ditto again, dumb question but how much frost does it take to do a number on Canola?

2.2 is said to be a killing frost, but how bad and how long are factors. Some years ago a frost in july wiped out lots of us, but did not hurt me as it was that cold but not at the ground, at least for me. I have been hit bad in the spring on canola, the experts say young canola is tough, hogwash. To many varables involved.

Really depends where you measure the temp. Try at ground level and you might be surprised at the difference from 3/4 feet above ground where most official sites measure.
A neighbour did some trials a few years back with ground level recording, answer won't help you sleep.

If the ground is black it will keep it warmer if it is zero tilled with lots of straw get ready to replant. My experience anyways.

Agree. It was 10 and I was spraying by 730. Much better than frost.
