Leading Genetics in Corn

Elite’s corn evaluation program has access to multiple trait platforms and again is focused on early-maturing hybrids. The selection of grain corn hybrids targets yield, drydown, standability and disease resistance. In their silage and grazing line-up, hybrids are selected for high tonnage, high energy and production per acre.

Harvest Timing

Posted: Aug 16, 2022

If you don’t already have crops being harvested, you’re likely keeping a close eye on your fields to decide when to start. Just like any other crop, timing of when you start harvesting your canola can have big impacts on yield and quality, here are a few things to keep in mind as you watch your crops progress this fall.

The first decision to make is whether you will be harvesting or swathing a crop. This is largely influenced by hybrid– if you have seeded canola with pod shatter protection, such as a Pod DefendR hybrid, you may be able to leave these fields out to straight cut.

Scouting For Blackleg in Canola

Posted: Aug 16, 2022

Disease surveying in the fall is one of those tasks many of us drag our feet on. Nothing can be done that late in the season to protect the crop from damage, so why survey? The value of surveying is to assess your current management practices and hybrid selections to help make better-informed decisions that will maximize yield potential in future years.

For a disease like blackleg, the canola crop may not show visible signs of damage. Only after disease surveying may the true level of blackleg damage be determined, along with the bushels lost to the disease.
