Canola agronomy and phenology to optimise yield locations
Aims

To better understand yield drivers of canola in eastern Australia by improving the profitability of canola as part of the 'Optimised Canola Profitability (OCP)' project..

Key messages
  • Improved knowledge of how canola varieties develop in differing regions and the drivers behind development will assist growers in choosing the correct variety for a particular sowing opportunity.
  • The development of site specific optimal flowering windows, where the balance between plant growth and frost and heat risks are accounted for, will allow growers and advisors to match canola variety selection with sowing opportunities.
  • Nitrogen is an important driver of canola yields in above average seasons. Low risk techniques to ensure adequate nitrogen supply are critical to capitalise on above average rainfall in the low rainfall zone.
