A good crowd was on hand yesterday for the Wheatland Conservation Field Tour in Swift Current.

Producers and Industry reps in attendance had a chance to learn more about soybean production, intercropping, 4-R Nitrogen Management in Wheat and Canola, and more.

Nicole Philp, an agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada, talked about their Canola Performance Trials.

"We have 10 sites in Saskatchewan, 25 across western Canada," said Philp. "We're kind of spread out in Saskatchewan, so we can take a really good look at all the varieties and all sorts of different different growing regions and growing conditions. I think we have about 26 variets in this year, and this is actually the first year we implemented a straight-cut protocol."

She notes data on yield, height, lodging and disease resistance is collected at the various sites and the results posted on their website at www.canolaperformancetrials.ca.
