Canola growth and development – impact of ToS and seasonal conditions locations
Aims

To identify variety x sowing date combinations to achieve optimum flowering window.

Key messages
  • Early sowing opportunities may provide a great opportunity to maximise canola yield, but selection of the correct variety is important.
  • Understanding the drivers behind canola development will help to improve canola management and variety selection.
  • Varietal maturity ratings don’t always correlate with varietal phenology.
