We have a New Holland T9 645 2021 tractor. Running a 7700 bourgalt with a 3330 drill.

Wondering for advice on PSI that is good for canola (compaction wheels).
It is on the dry side here.
seems good if it is 1050 PSI if it is wet.
But unsure on if it is dry and also if it is dry then rains a inch two days later?

any advice grain farmers?

Have pack master on my BG. Running higher set pressure because of the dry conditions.
I have seen it vary from low of 1100 to high of 1700.
Average would be around 1300 to 1400 pounds for this season. When I dig seed I don't find it too tight. Our soil may be less clay than yours though.

Thank you for response. Wow that is high in my opinion, though I sure don’t know everything. My dad said that we were packing the canola in too tight for years. We had the V-packers before. And yes, he was right.
The most we go with wheat is 1350. I can’t imagine going that tight with canola.

1200 is about average in my area talking to other BG guys in most years. It is just so bone dry here I'm running higher packing pressure this year.
Any moisture in the ground and I would back way off.

My dad wants to run 900. There isn’t much moisture in soil. Too scared to. I’m running 1000/1050. we will see how she goes.

You, and more importantly your dad, will not notice the difference.
Thanks Don for reply. I thought I saw some 70+ bushel canola trials you did if I’m not mistaken. You must be doing right. Any advice to give canola a boost other than lots of water? We have grown 60 on good year, maybe one field a generous 65.. hope I’m not exaggerating.

Just do your 4Rs and after that timely rains and just the right amount of sunny days will give you big bushels.
