Canola

Benefits of a crop rotation system are:

  • Reduction in diseases
  • More effective weed control
  • Improved root system (biological ploughing action)

    Canola is a winter crop that requires relatively cool, moist conditions for the best results, particularly in the flowering, pod-development and seed-setting stages. Canola can be cultivated in South Africa in virtually all the areas where wheat is cultivated, but does not produce the same good results everywhere.

     

    It is mainly used as a rotational crop with wheat, especially with the advantage of herbicide resistant varieties.
