The Agronomists, Ep 78: Doug Moisey and Shawn Senko on canola swath timing and pre-harvest scouting

The canola crop is marching towards harvest, and that means it’s time to start the game day decision: is it ready to swath or do you let it stand?

To tackle that question, we go to Doug Moisey with Corteva, and Shawn Senko of the Canola Council of Canada. From gauging seed colour change, to choosing varieties that can withstand a later harvest, to managing harvest losses, watch below for a great discussion on swath timing and late-season scouting.
