Distinctly Different than winter wheat.
It is soon to be thee crop for the Great Plains.
A story of opportunity and positive outlook.
Will Winter Canola survive a storm that killed 20,000 head of cattle
in SW Kansas?
May 20, 2017, Hugoton, KS. Winter Canola continues to come back and
bloom stronger and stronger.
Joel McClure is optimistic with a third
trip with insecticide (Diamond Back Moth) and also fungicide,
this is a good crop.
I need some shades! Reports Ben McClure.
Winter Canola is now in 8th week. Joel McClure field at, Hugoton,
Ben McClure, Kramer seed has a late planted dryland corn crop going
in….He sent in this photo today from his tractor seat watching his
brother Joel make history on the Great Plains.
Winter Canola, Rubisco, Hornet, Mercedes, Garnet and others
have survived the 60 MPH winds , 15
to 22 inches of snow in the area @ 30 to 32 F temperature at full
bloom, the 100 year storm Ursa, April 28 to May 1.
Amazingly the Winter Canola grew under a heavy snow packat freezing
Joel received the neighbors
blowing snow field which putdown his 5 foot tall Winter
Canola and protected the blooming crop
under the snow.
Joel must have ended up with 8 to 10 inches total extra moisture
from the Snow Trap effect.
His Winter Canola fields might bloom 9 weeks.
You can call ahead for a tour.

The Hornet variety of Rubisco is impressive. It shows good vigor and

and with Micros.
Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS formulators using high analysis materials
at highest efficiency is a big change.

You would want to band your TAPPS and TAPPKTS plus Micros Zn, B, Fe,
Cu, Mn, Mo, with a Mustang P-51CUE tool bar.
You would set up a controller with a script to make precision TAPPS
and TAPPKTS fertilizer for each part of the field in a different
What would be the cost for the fertilizer plant food? How many
pounds per acre of total material would be applied?

Sixty Six Years ago,
when Mode-O-Day department stores sold hats and ties.
When tillage farming was in and No-tillage farming was unheard of.
At Cypress, Texas (Houston) using Refrigerant Grade Ammonia to feed
crops and 82.5% N .
Anhydrous Ammonia, Ag Grade did not come until later, 1 gallon of
water per 1,000 gallons NH3 results in 82.4% N and sold as 82% N.
The tool, “Shreds the soil several inches deep.” Applied with a “
Tiller and Hoses attached to Claws” with a critical flexible hood.
Anhydrous Ammonia and Mr. Chester Turner and his staff makes the
news in Popular Mechanics, March 1951,
It cost half as much and was dangerous enough to require trained and
Texas has come a long way in hat design also.
I need one of those hats, and a tie to
wipe the sweat from my brow.
