    Jul 29, 2020 | 08:33 9 I think those are aster yellows, infected plants from leafhopper bugs blown up by the southern winds. We are due for another round of those, about 10 years ago we had them bad. Reply With Quote

    Yes could be male sterile plants. Usually they grow quite large with little to no pods. Reply With Quote

    What you have is winter canola in the seed. This is more than I have seen but was quite common a few years ago. They multiply the seed in countries that have winter canola. Reply With Quote

    Jul 29, 2020 | 18:07 17 Does winter canola Or rapeseed not grow pogs the year it is seeded, does It need to go through a winter before it will go to seed ?
    I was shocked the first time I saw winter rapeseed in France. Late June and it was already nearly ripe, 6 feet tall and standing straight up. Ours often grows that tall, but Never stays standing like that.

    I have a friend that brought a bit home from Kentucky and planted it in the garden to see if it would be hardy enough but it didnt make the winter. I think the only canola they grow there is winter stuff and small acreage. Reply With Quote

    Jul 29, 2020 | 22:53 19 I have the same across my canola acres all 233p, BASF probably added the allowed % to save some money It’s the seed game.

    Kinda reminds me of a processor when asked if he cleaned to seed standards. He said he would go broke because no one would buy his product. Meaning he had to hit a much higher standard. Reply With Quote
