Canola College slated

ENID, Okla. — Agricultural producers interested in learning how to maximize their canola production should register to attend Thursday’s Canola College in Enid.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn from and speak with leading experts in the field, and interact with more than 200 new or veteran canola producers and industry members,” said Ron Sholar, Great Plains Canola Associa-tion executive director.

The conference will be 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Chisholm Trail Pavilion,. There is no cost to attend. Registration is available online at http://www.canola. okstate.edu via Oklahoma State University’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.

“We ask participants to pre-register as soon as possible because it greatly aids our planning and helps ensure that sufficient numbers of conference materials, refreshments and meals are on hand; lunch is being provided free of charge to participants,” said Josh Bushong, Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Ser-vice canola specialist.

Canola College is a joint effort of the division, GPCA, Kansas State University and cooperating partners in the canola industry.

Conference breakout sessions will focus on practical tips for getting started right when growing canola, a perspective from experienced growers on how to enhance canola operations, benefits provided by using wheat and canola in a crop rotation, insect control, weed control and harvest management.

For information, contact Bushong by email at josh.bushong@okstate.edu or by phone at (405) 744-9600, or Sholar by email at jrsholar@aol.com or by phone at (405) 780-0113.

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

  • Right to Farm web 1.jpg Ag industry seeks right to farm

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports. It’s also possible the right-to-farm idea could sputter as a merely symbolic gesture that carries little practical effect beyond driving up voter turnout in local elections.
