    Manitoba - Sep 20 - 24% harvested canola
    Sask - Sept 12 - 39% harvested canola
    Alta - Sept 13 - 31% harvested canola

    If he would have said 10% has been sold - that would be believable. 10% harvested is not. Reply With Quote

  • Sep 21, 2022 | 14:33 4 Probably 90% in this area off

    Seeding date and if swathing was used. Straight cut 3 weeks later harvest…

  • Sep 21, 2022 | 17:17 9 Far less than ten per cent here. Just a couple fields taken so far. But that’s normal. It’s certainly not panic time unless you are from someplace where august harvest is normal. Reply With Quote

    A lot closer to 10% in the NE.
    Thinking the Humboldt/nipawin area is what he was referring to. Reply With Quote
    Sep 21, 2022 | 20:44 11 Standing canola really slow to come around here. Swaths all done a week or more ago. Significant yield penalty for swathing in the heat tho-10% for sure.
    Lack of rain to finish the crop was problematic. Our irrigated canola finished/ripened normally and straight cut it dry, and easy. Dryland crops taking a lot longer even after diquat.
    I think the risk of having it out longer is being offset by the yield gain. If it were to start snowing, that risk equation would look much different. Reply With Quote

    Partners's Avatar Sep 21, 2022 | 21:02 13 Some people still cut canola real green.
    Yes loss foresure in heat.
    But with pod shatter and swathing when seeds are blk half way up the plant has changed the rules on that.
    Canola dry in 12 days leaves straight cut in the dust.. Reply With Quote

    Both have their place
    No doubt there was yield loss on early swathed stuff here for sure , was unavoidable with the continued heat and wind . Was no real good time to swath . We swathed on the later side what we could , there was very little yield difference .
    Standing thin spots had a fair amount of pod drop in areas . So it’s a give and take here . Lighter swaths were blown in areas , headlands not fun on a few fields Reply With Quote
    Sep 21, 2022 | 21:59 17 North of here , straight cut is a train wreck with wet green straw and pods going straight out
    Canola dry , straw green and wet . Impossible to separate with any machine . It need time and frost , but farmers are farmers and impatient lol Reply With Quote

  • Sep 21, 2022 | 23:08 18 Less than 10% here, I only know one field that is done actually. Likely everyone going soon though, probably start up by the weekend. Some swaths have been down for over 3 weeks. Reply With Quote

    Snow is the reason I straight cut everything. We have combined standing canola with snow on the ground more years than not. No hope of doing swaths in those conditions. Reply With Quote

  • Sep 22, 2022 | 08:45 20 In my area of the SE mostly standing canola left. It hasn't been ready until the last few days. We are just finishing cereals and will be in canola soon. A few just trying to go early were losing unripe post over the sieves last week. A lot better now. Reply With Quote

  • Sep 22, 2022 | 09:57 21 West of Edmonton just a little has been taken off. The big white combine has harvested more canola in the last few weeks than any other colour machine around here.

    Just going to try some swathes today here…….🤞 Reply With Quote

    We are almost the same area and there is standing canola everywhere I look.
    I swathed all my canola and have 30% of it off. The rest of mine was testing 12 this afternoon. Reply With Quote

    I guess I should clarify. Snow that is sort of dry, not too heavy, or even a series of snows like that-standing can be just fine.
    2016 tho we got a couple feet of wet heavy snow in first week of Oct. Pasted everything to the ground. It did melt, but digging that canola off the ground wrecked a lot of machinery. Some didn’t get harvested til the following spring, and that was with heavy harrows.

    Both swath and straight have their place. We do some of each to hedge against things going badly for one way or the other.

    Shatter resistant canola is nice for having more options/flexibility. BASF is a shit company to have to buy it from but that’s another discussion. Reply With Quote

    Yes it’s amazing
    15 miles and it’s a different world
    You sure got nailed with the water this spring
    Know the feeling
    Hope you get it
    Been there so often

    Been there, done that, have the destroyed equipment to prove it. Year after year.

    Roll all the cereals because scraping them off the ground due to snow and or rain is just par for the course. There have been a few times I wished we had rolled the canola too. Don't Reply With Quote

    Noticed a lot of canola sitting in bags and guys done and not moving it. Is it all pre contracted, who knows, but no apparent rush to haul it in. Reply With Quote

    Read that too. Seen it with my own eyes. Reports coming in from areas not far away on ground better than mine in the 30’s. That $900 per bag canola seed did no better than the cheap stuff. Been that way last 3+ years. Parasites better realize flax and cereals are penciling out just as good and less risk. Cinderella is old grumpy and expects more than she deserves. Still figure if all the expected crush capacity comes to fruition we won’t be able to satisfy that let alone export. Throw in fertilizer reduction bs and disease pressure and we will be importing the crap. Reply With Quote

    Anecdotally, before harvest there was a real shortage of grain bins at any price. Yet a few days ago I was told that due to the disappointing yields, there's lots of grain bins available now. This is central Alberta, anything that wasn't drowned out or hailed out looked tremendous as of middle of July. I expected many of the areas west of highway 2 to be disappointing with all of the excess rain, but on paper at least, it was an ideal year east of highway 2. I would have thought that with that much rain in june, most areas could survive a period of hot and dry. I know I am certainly grateful that it finally quit raining and turned 30 above. Our crops were so far behind from the lack of heat in June that I thought they never would finish.
