Just a quick thought, how dry before canola won't fill!!
We got really savage the last few dry years and cut for hay, it tests really well when cut at flowering but no one will buy it.
Too many guys bought podding canola with nothing in it and ruined the markets into the future.
So my question is should I leave it and direct head what comes or if it will just die!!
Or should I just plow it in on the next rain??

It is amazing how it fills in a hard spring, we find it the flower duration that effects yield the most. This is in the northern mallee. Our canola stubbles always are dryer and effect the next crop more than wheat unless a wet summer.

Sorry I farm in donald too, I've got wet conditions at Lismore and dry in donald.
Canola only been flowering for the last 2 weeks and only foot high, maybe it will hold on.
