CanolaTV- 2012 Winter Canola Field Tours Kick Off April 9th

A series of educational field tours for canola growers and prospective canola growers all across the state kicks off April 9th and runs through April 12th. Educators, agronomists and marketing specialists will give presentations and discuss the ins and outs of successful canola production at each tour location.

OSU Extension Canola Specialist Josh Bushong says anyone is welcome to attend. He said the program is intended to help established canola growers fine tune their management practices and to encourage potential growers with the knowledge necessary to understand if canola might be a good addition to their operations.

Below the video is a full list of dates, times and stops on the 2012 Winter Canola Field Tour.
