Low plant densities can cause yield loss and weed-control problems. Evaluations at Answer Plot® Program trials have led us to recommend a seeding rate of 4 to 5 pounds per acre to establish 8 to 12 plants per square foot. However, the seeding rate should be increased under poor planting conditions.
Manage straw immediately after wheat harvest to improve seed-to-soil contact at planting time. Thick straw often increases crown height, which decreases winter survival. Vertical tillage, strip tillage and row crop planting equipment can improve plant mortality. Slower planting speeds can help you better manage planting depth.
Proper row spacing and inter-plant spacing is important when planting canola. The most common spacing is 6 to 10 inches, whether with older drills or new air seeders. This provides the fastest ground cover, helping with weed control, and is often higher-yielding.
