Park the Planter.
An Award Winning Scientists
Says, ”Park The Planter”.
What are you talking about,
Winner of Two National Awards
confirms, Park the Planter, …Why.
- Communication of the facts.
- You may not like what you are going to hear,
this is a management problem.
An Exactrix owner….A Deere Planted winter
Canola stand at Garden City, KS. Not a top yielding scenario and no
weed control options.
A give up moment,
this Winter Canola crop requires management.
An Exactrix Owner with a 20 million dollar,
livestock and cropping enterprise. Here is a 12,000 acre producer
that owns three 1790 planters with experienced operators,
a Total of 80 years of experience with planters.
Planting Canola Consistently with
Persistence is not possible with a 30 inch planter at St. John
Washington, in an intermediate
rainfall, unless your machinery has the
capability for 65 gallons per acre of $5 per acre water,
in the row.
An investment of $5.00 per acre will produce
a 95% to 99% stand in four days.
Here is a Chemfallow result with a planter
No planters…SRS is required…..Do not attempt
winter canola planted without SRS….you will have a failure….
Remember with a planter you must have a 95%
stand in 4 days.
You must stick with the 1890 drill by
raising your seed rate to 300,000 per acre and accepting less.
With a Drill You must accept a lower yield
and poor weed control on hilltops, slopes and weedy areas of the

Growing weeds is not an option.
A pivot application of H2O
will not help in spring Canola.
Why own a planter with a stand like this.
Lots of water at 3,800 feet and still the
producer cannot get a stand.
- A pivot will not help in winter
canola. Irrigated producers know that you should never irrigate
a crop up.
- Every seed in every row must come
together in a march to life. No stragglers. Stragglers become
- Excess water brings on all weeds
everywhere in the field.
- SRS is a form of weed control. Organic
farmers so note.
- You must have 95% to 99% emergence in
4 days….a pivot cannot do that.
- Mormon Farmers in Southern Idaho at
5,000 feet know that too….”never irrigate a crop up.”
Idaho and Washington State Plant Breeders want to
know how to get the top yields.
