Canola bugs or disease?

Aug 6, 2017 | 08:19 1 Any thoughts on what caused this in our canola? Or is it extreme heat?

Lol....this is from a low spot with adequate moisture and by the looks of it a poor plant population(frost damage) ...a stark difference from what probably 90% of the rest of our crop looks like.

But had to post it, so some people can say; see, I told you it wasn't as bad as you said it was". And yup, it could be worse!.... even in the shitty spots! Reply With Quote
Aug 6, 2017 | 12:32 12 Europe is suffering the same weather pattern as Southern Sask. Watch those grain prices. If the Aussies and Europe and I dunno about S. America, could be many hungry mouths to feed. Reply With Quote

That's okay the USA even in drought or flood, has a a record crop to ruin any chance of higher prices...
Or Brazil, two crops per year, or China with BS crop reports to BUY CHEAP! Reply With Quote
farmaholic's Avatar Aug 6, 2017 | 12:41 14 I think there are going to be some amazing pricing opportunities AFTER HARVEST and the following marketing year. We are going to need decent prices to make up for less quantity.

But shhhhh.... there are no supply issues! What is disturbing is how fast things can turn around....from adequate and over supplied markets to holy shit Houston there might be a problem. Reply With Quote

Aug 6, 2017 | 17:29 18 In your first photo I'd say partially due to heat blast, but also looks like something else, perhaps viral? Doesn't have the typical aster yellow symptoms though. Maybe herbicide drift? Is it throughout the field or in localized areas of the field?

2nd photo clearly aster yellows. They were really bad in 2012, took my canola from 60+bu stand to 22 bu

That is for sure Aster Yellows. I'm seeing the odd one this year, but nothing like 2012. Those plant won't produce any viable seeds. Reply With Quote
Aug 6, 2017 | 19:24 20 Thanks...
Is this the aster yellow leaf hopper then?

That looks like a diamond back moth. The leaf hoppers that cause aster yellows hop around like little grass hoppers. We had lots of them here this year but I'm not seeing a lot of aster yellows. It's a weird virus for sure. Reply With Quote
Aug 6, 2017 | 21:17 22 Could it be winter off types mixed in your canola seed? Usually from Argentina production. Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Aug 7, 2017 | 06:31 23 Boys that's aster yellow not disease or drought. Windy years the hoppers blow in from the USA. This year was windy. We lost a big part of our crop in 2012 with these. Lots of you started spraying for disease when it was aster yellow. Reply With Quote

.........even the first pictures posted? I'd have to agree with aster yellows on the canola pictured against the red shirt(or what ever). Reply With Quote
