  6. 6. Winter Canola: A Biomass and Oil Production Facility For high yields, winter canola exerts huge demands on moisture. 6 to 8“ equivalent in 65 -75 days from beginning of flowering to maturity 70 -90 lb. accumulation of total dry matter / day (30 lb. seed / day) in a 45 bu./ac. crop plus high rates of oil biosynthesis. With optimal nutrients, water, temperatures and high yield potential genetics dry matter formation and seed yield can double over numbers aboveCaldbeck Consulting LLC ©

  11. 11. Establishing Winter Canola in Oklahoma Winter Wheat Stubbles Conventional or Min-Till No-Till• Accelerate wheat straw • Chemical Fallow degradation ↓allelopathy • Moisture retention /• Encourage weed/volunteer accumulation in profile seed bank • Very difficult to establish germination/reduction viable stand in heavy wheat residue even with no-till• Water table/salinity wheat drills; allelopathy• Incorporation of fertility, • Burning residue counter- manure, litter or lime productive to soil fertility and• Stale seedbed eliminates carbon balance of the crop for excessive soil disturbance processors. resulting in optimum depth • Better depth control / control and consolidation consolidation
  12. 12. ALLELOPATHY WHEAT RESIDUE LEACHATES INHIBIT CANOLA GERMINATION AND GROWTH S.E. Bruce1, J.A. Kirkegaard1, S. Cormack2 and J. Pratley2. 1CSIRO Plant Industry, GPO Box 1600, Canberra, ACT, 2601. 2 Farrer Centre, Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW, 2678. ABSTRACT Aqueous extracts of undecomposed residues of 2 wheat varieties (cv. Janz and Swift) were tested for their effect on the germination and radicle growth of lupins, oats and canola. Overall, the wheat residues were more toxic to canola than the other species although varietal differences were also evident. Both wheat cultivars caused greater inhibition of radicle growth of the canola cultivars than the other species. Extracts of Janz were more toxic to canola cv. Oscar germination than the other species while Swift was more toxic to oats cv. Echidna germination. These observations may explain the poor emergence and vigour of canola sown into wheat straw. Selection of canola varieties tolerant to wheat stubble phytotoxins may be possible for increasing the yield potential of canola crops in a wheat-canola rotation. 10th Intl.

  22. 22. Over-seeding Winter Canola is counter-intuitive • Manifestation of non-regular linear distribution of plants within the canopy which is proven to decrease yields (Huehn, 1998) • Greater than optimal fall stands create severe inter- plant competition; this has been demonstrated to reduce the yield potential of the remaining viable spring plants by 50 to 100% (Stoy 1983) • Excessive or non-regular density influences crown height which in turn influences plant viability and stand lossCaldbeck Consulting LLC ©
